Personalized repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (PrTMS) is a powerful new therapy being offered by Telos. The treatment uses low amplitude, non-invasive, magnetic pulses to stimulate or suppress out-of-sync neuronal activity in functional brain areas, we call brain arrhythmia.
The newly built clinic is a smartly appointed area that looks more like a spa than a doctors office. With the announcement of Telos’ participation, Kevin T Murphy, MD who developed it, traveled to Orem UT in September to share and train on the new system.

PrTMS is a powerful FDA-cleared treatment for drug-resistant mental health conditions like Major Depressive Disorder. Telos has been asked to conduct a year-long study for FDA trials on other disorders like Autism. The range of successful treatments are impressive with over 50,000 scans completed. Telos maintains medical staff and techs who perform these scans and Telos' doctor works in conjunction with Dr Murphy to analyze and offer the proper course of treatment.
The system uses only 25-30% of the power of a traditional TMS system. It is able to do this by measuring and identifying areas of the brain with qEEG needing help, then treating those exact areas of the brain. Less power, more accuracy means better outcomes. Tony Mosier, COO of Telos remarked "We are excited from the results of PrTMS, many are life-changing. We anticipate more great outcomes from the Autism clinical trial starting in January".
Substantial benefits have been seen in treating conditions as simple as “foggy thinking” to complex conditions like autism. The following are a few key elements of the system:
- Low amplitude
- 30 minute treatments
PrTMS is powered by PeakLogic and all treatments are done according to each individual’s protocol and dose established by a licensed treatment provider. Each patient does the initial assessment test and then 6-8 weeks of daily treatments. For many, this is all that is needed. Others may need a “tune-up” 6-12 months later to obtain the optimal balance. Eventually the protocol is no longer needed as the brain operates in a balanced mode.
