Expert Answer: TMS device for migraine

Question: Is the Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation device available for use yet?

The transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) device for aborting a Migraine in progress is now called Spring TMS and was developed by Neuralieve / eNeuras Therapeutics.

It has gone through clinical trials and been submitted to the FDA for approval for the treatment of Migraine with aura, but the FDA has not yet acted upon the application for approval.

The device was recently approved in Europe and will be available there this summer. There is no word on when the FDA will act upon the application for approval in the United States, and the device cannot be prescribed or sold in the U.S. until it’s approved by the FDA.
