SoftStar allows heathcare professionals (HCPs) to effortlessly add or delete a series of pulses during a treatment session to ramp to the specified treatment level, allowing clinicians to automate the treatment pulse ramping profile.

FREMONT, CA: A commercial-stage medical technology firm focused on designing, developing, and marketing products that improve the quality of life for patients with neuro health disorders, Neuronetics has come up with its latest evolution of the NeuroStar Advanced Therapy System, which includes upgraded equipment and features. NeuroStar Advanced Therapy for Mental Health is the chief transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) treatment for major depressive disorder, with over four million treatments performed and thousands of lives transformed. In addition to a new look, the NeuroStar and TrakStar upgrades will make it easier for HCPs to treat more patients.

“In my eleven years as a NeuroStar provider, I have been impressed with the NeuroStar teams constant focus on delivering innovative products and support programs for my practice,” said Bernadette DeMuri, MD, TMS Center of Wisconsin. “These new features will create a better experience for patients while simultaneously helping save time within my practice so my team and I can focus on what is most important treating the people who are suffering from depression.”

An improved motor threshold (MT) algorithm, Fast MT that minimizes the number of steps required to establish the appropriate MT level—one of the major treatment settings—is included in the update. SoftStar allows HCPs to effortlessly add or delete a series of pulses during a treatment session to ramp to the specified treatment level, allowing clinicians to automate the treatment pulse ramping profile. HCPs will also be able to electronically request a benefits investigation (BI) for new potential patients and then manage and view BI results directly from NeuroStar’s own HIPAA-compliant TrakStar patient data management system.

TrakStar is a critical tool that helps practice manage patients throughout their treatment course and track their outcomes. It was created to boost productivity, safety, and practice marketing. It allows one to spend more time with patients while spending less time on paperwork and other administrative responsibilities.
