NeuroStar TMS therapy system cures depression with magnetic field pulses

Sure, this might look exactly like a dentist chair, but it's designed to provide you with the exact opposite of the stress that going to the dentist delivers. Instead, it's a therapy system by Neuronetics called the NeuroStar Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Therapy System. OK!

Designed to help people with serious depression, the system delivers short magnetic field pulses to the left prefrontal cortex as an alternative to medication. Apparently, in trials, people responded very well to the therapy. But really, they could have made it look a little less like a dentist's chair.
