At BrainCare Performance Center, we are experts at delivering personal, precision-guided care to improve brain health.
We enable brain breakthroughs through non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical Magnetic e-Resonance Therapy (MeRT).
Our progressive approach maps your brain pattern, activity, and function to identify ideal brainwaves for stimulation. Your EEG-guided therapy is assessed and adjusted to direct gentle magnetic pulses where your brain needs them most.
Our patented technology is:
Your biology guides your therapy.
This bold new direction in brain health is driven by your EEG, a biometric sensor providing an objective digital analysis of your brain, allowing us to:
How it works
Inform care through technology.
You have a unique brainwave signature. We conduct an electroencephalogram (EEG) to map your specific brain function and activity. This objective, digital baseline analysis reveals frequencies that are not functioning optimally. We pair this test with an electrocardiogram (EKG) to analyze your heart rate linked to brain-heart coherence as part of your overall health assessment.
Translate brainwaves into insights.
Your EEG is analyzed and processed by our data science lab to inform your personal braincare protocol. This protocol, tailored to your brain, intelligently choreographs brainwave activity into a more synchronized pattern.
Deliver precision care.
Your braincare protocol is delivered via in-clinic, outpatient therapy. Our FDA-cleared MeRT equipment delivers gentle, mild pulses of energy to stimulate the brain by frequency, location, and output intensity to identify and activate neural network pathways. Sessions are typically 30-45 minutes, five days per week for approximately four to six weeks.
Reassess and track progress.
Your care is objectively measured, managed, and evaluated every two weeks to assess changes in brainwave activity and illuminate your progress resulting from brain stimulation.
Is BrainCare Performance Center Right for You?
Our clients turn to us for a sophisticated, effective solution to sharpen overall brain function as well as address challenges associated with Depression, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Traumatic Brain Injuries, Concussions, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and more.
You have questions, we have answers
MeRT stands for Magnetic e-Resonance Therapy, a highly customized use of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) to address a wide range of neurological conditions. Based on sophisticated diagnostics, MeRT is a painless, non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical approach tailored to each person’s unique brain.
MeRT uses a proprietary brain wave analysis to identify the areas in the brain in need of improved function or communication. An EEG is performed on each patient to determine the exact frequency of the brain. These results are then reviewed and evaluated by the clinical and scientific team at BrainCare Performance Center. The patient’s EEG and EKG are analyzed to ascertain the brain’s pattern of function, detect brain activity, and determine its state of neural synchronization.
Our physicians use this information to develop a client-specific and targeted approach designed to encourage and restore healthy brain communication. The treatment protocol is completely tailored to each person’s brain by location, frequency, and output intensity or amount of energy delivered. This technology works by using a magnetic coil to gently neuromodulate the brain’s electrical activity. This therapy gently stimulates the specific locations in the brain which can lead to improved function. This can lead to significant clinical improvements.
Unlike standard Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) therapy, which delivers stimulation to one location at a fixed frequency for all patients, the Magnetic e-Resonance Therapy (MeRT) approach individualizes the treatment frequency, location, and output intensity based on each patient’s unique brain. MeRT elevates the benefits of TMS technology by pairing it with EEG and EKG diagnostics for a more sophisticated solution to meet an individual’s needs. This results in a customized approach to deliver the best possible outcomes.
MeRT therapy delivers magnetic pulses to specifically targeted areas of the brain. A typical appointment of MeRT consists of 30 trains of electromagnetic stimulation delivered for 6 seconds each with 54 seconds of rest period in between trains to a specific location on the head. A typical appointment lasts approximately 45 minutes.
Our equipment is currently FDA-cleared for the treatment of Depression and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). For all other disorders, it is currently being used “off label.” Final studies are taking place through Texas A&M University to seek FDA-clearance for Traumatic Brain Injury and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
