Example of a typical setup with Axilum Robotics TMS-Robot
Axilum Robotics TMS-Robot, in combination with a compatible neuronavigation system and a compatible coil connected to its stimulator, offers a full robot assisted TMS system allowing the automatic execution of an image guided TMS session planned in advance. Whether you are looking for a complete TMS system or a robotic assistance to your existing TMS system, Axilum Robotics can provide you with the best solution for your needs. This page contain information about the compatibility of TMS-Robot with other TMS equipments.
Axilum Robotics has established partnerships with leading manufacturers Localite, Rogue Research and Syneika to ensure a seamless integration of TMS-Robot with their products equipped with an optional Axilum Robotics TMS-Robot supervision module. The fully integrated TMS system takes advantage of the 3D optical tracking system provided by the neuronavigation system. Axilum Robotics TMS-Robot connects to a compatible neuronavigation system using a simple Ethernet cable. Available functionalities depend on compatible neuronavigation systems and their software version.

TMS Coils and Stimulators
Axilum Robotics has established partnerships with leading manufacturers Deymed, Mag & More, Magstim, MagVenture and Neurosoft to ensure a seamless integration of TMS-Robot with their TMS cooled coils. Mechanical adaptors ensure stable, safe and calibrated mounting of TMS and rTMS coils onto the robotic arm. Flat force sensors, designed by Axilum Robotics are fixed to the inferior surface of the compatible coils.

EEG Measurement Devices
Compatibility has been verified with Neuroelectrics Enobio/Starstim EEG device and Brain Products BrainCap/BrainAmp EEG device.
About testing of Brain Products EEG device, results have been published in journal NeuroImage in July 2016: S. Harquel et al., Mapping dynamical properties of cortical microcircuits using robotized TMS and EEG: Towards functional cytoarchitectonics, In: NeuroImage, Volume 135, pages 115-124, July 2016.

The test of Neuroelectrics EEG device used a TMS equipment composed of a MagVenture MagPro R30 TMS Stimulator with a coil of type Cool-B65-RO installed on Axilum Robotics TMS-Robot which was piloted by LOCALITE 2.2 TMS neuronavigation system. Stimulation amplitude was typically set at 90% of the maximal amplitude and the pulse type was biphasic. It was observed that:
- Lost data due to artifacts generated by TMS pulses is not significant;
- Recovery time after a TMS pulse is quick (10 ms);
- Axilum Robotics TMS-Robot does not induce additional artifacts.
