Magnetic stimulation against stroke

Dear Sir or Madam,

Physiotherapy, ergotherapy, logopedics – they all are established treatment methods to get people on their feet again after a stroke. But what happens when the brain does not play along because of damage it has suffered? Transcranial magnetic stimulation can then be a way to activate and stimulate neural cells. Learn in our latest video how this works and which role artificial intelligence plays here.

Stay healthy!

A controlled circadian rhythm and sleep/wake cycle is the prerequisite for delirium prevention. This is where the new VitalMinds concept from Philips comes in.
