The most advanced brain stimulation treatment for brain injury and stroke patients looking to improve both motor and cognitive function and quality of life. Verita Neuro are delighted to bring the most exciting innovation in the treatment of stroke and traumatic brain injury to patients worldwide. We are at the forefront of offering next-generation treatments to patients living with the impact of life-changing injury or neurological conditions. Like all of Verita Neuro’s treatments, BrainStim is a unique and innovative procedure, offering patients the best chance of a return to physical and sensory functions.
What is Brain Stimulation?
Brain stimulation is a widely studied treatment which uses ‘neuromodulation’ – technology which directly interacts with the nerves and helps to replace and restore the lost neural pathways. BrainStim is Vertia Neuro’s specialized brain stimulation treatment, tailored to stroke and traumatic brain injury patients. The first step of BrainStim is a surgical procedure during which a stimulator made up of a strip of electrodes is implanted over the motor cortex, the area responsible for movement. During the surgery, our neurosurgeon performs tests to determine the optimal location of the electrode implantation.
Once the patient has recovered from surgery, which is usually within only two days, a process called ‘mapping’ begins. During this process, various areas of the motor cortex are stimulated. The stimulation is then combined with task-based activities and physical therapy, which allows patients to regain lost functions. At Verita Neuro, we also provide occupational therapy, speech therapy and IV high dose vitamins to help aid patient recovery.
Who is Eligible For Our BrainStim Treatment?
Brain stimulation is a treatment that improves the symptoms of a number of different conditions and injuries including:
- Ischemic stroke
- Hemorrhagic stroke
- Traumatic brain injury
- Brain stem injury
Before patients come to our site to receive BrainStim, we perform individual assessments based on each client’s unique situation. Get in touch with our advisors to discuss how we can help. Before your consultation, a treatment evaluation is prepared based on the medical form we ask you to fill in, and your medical files, which you will be asked to upload following your initial inquiry.
What Are The Benefits of Brain Stimulation For Stroke and Brain Injury Patients?
We believe that implantable neurostimulators have an incredible edge over other modes of stimulation. They provide direct, controllable, and long-term stimulation of the motor cortex. This eventually results in the remodeling of neural pathways, which leads to the recovery of motor and sensory functions. The treatment also promotes the regeneration of injured nerve cells and fiber.
This results in a number of possible areas of improvement, including:
- Motor function
- Sensory functions
- Neuropathic pain
- Speech and swallowing functions
- Cognitive functions
