Transcranial Pulse Stimulation (TPS): first NEUROLITH system installed in Switzerland

2first NEUROLITH system installed in Switzerland

Transcranial Pulse Stimulation (TPS®) for the treatment of Alzheimer's patients is now also available for patients in Switzerland. In early February 2021, the first NEUROLITH® system was successfully installed in the Praxis Alexander Russ in Zurich.

The NEUROLITH® practice A. Russ has already treated the first patients and reports that TPS® is in high demand: »We have numerous appointment requests from patients from the greater Zurich area, but also from the entire Lake Constance region and neighbouring southern Germany.«

In addition to Switzerland, TPS® is already available in Germany, Austria, Spain, France, Denmark, Portugal, England, Kuwait, Hong Kong, China and Canada. Another 15 installations are firmly planed until the middle of this year.

About TPS® treatment
In 2018, Transcranial Pulse Stimulation (TPS®) with the NEUROLITH® system was the first, and hitherto only, procedure of its kind to obtain market authorization for the »treatment of the central nervous system of patients with Alzheimer’s disease«.

TPS® can stimulate deep cerebral regions, reaching as much as 8 cm into the brain. Owing to the short duration of the TPS® stimulation, tissue heating is avoided. The pulses applied to the treatment area thus develop their maximum clinical effectiveness. TPS® treatment is performed through the closed skull. In studies, TPS® treatment has been shown to significantly improve CERAD test performance and to reduce Beck’s depression index in patients with mild to moderate dementia.
