IAQ-EMF Consulting Inc., the testing experts, we test for electromagnetic field interference (EMI) for workers and patients with medical devices such as deep brain stimulators (DBS) as well as pacemakers and defibrillators. Consulting experts since 1990.
DBS or Deep Brain Stimulation is recognized as a medical breakthrough in the form of treatment of movement disorders, including Parkinson’s disease, essential tremor, and dystonia. Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a neurosurgical procedure involving the placement of a medical device called a neurostimulator (sometimes referred to as a “brain pacemaker”) which sends electrical impulses through implanted electrodes, to specific targets in the brain.
One of the top medical suppliers in DBS treatment is Boston Scientific DBS. They provide medical support with implanted heart devices well. Boston Scientific DBS stands unparalleled in their support for patients suffering from Parkinson’s disease. Another major provider is Medtronic DBS Therapy. Medtronic DBS Therapy may reduce Parkinson’s medication. This may reduce medication-related side effects like unintended movements.
Although not a complete cure, DBS can significantly reduce or lessen the intensity of the undesirable neurological symptoms, resulting in a noticeable improvement in the life of the patient. Speaking in layman’s terms, the treatment uses electrical stimulation to treat several neurological conditions and alleviates symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disease and other neurological diseases.
