Pediatric Non-invasive Brain Stimulation Assessment

Technology No. 20160076

Assessment of Non-invasive Brain Stimulation Adverse Effects

A newly-developed assessment tool designed by pediatric neuroscientists and physicians allows practitioners of pediatric non-invasive brain stimulation to anticipate and address potential issues from adverse events. The assessment helps investigators assess and manage any adverse effects from non-invasive brain stimulation – and possibly helps prevent them from occurring in the first place. In addition, the tool provides critical information for managing seizures.

Non-invasive Brain Stimulation Assessment

The assessment is comprised of five documents:

  • tDCS Risk Mitigation and TMS Risk Mitigation, used for both minor and serious adverse event management
  • Participant Report of Symptoms, which assesses patient status
  • Seizure Management Guidelines and Seizure Observation Record, which guide investigators during the event of seizure.

BENEFITS AND FEATURES OF PEDIATRIC NON-INVASIVE BRAIN STIMULATION ASSESSMENT:

  • Provides important training
  • Enhances the child’s experience
  • May prevent some of the known adverse effects
  • Guides staff in assessing and managing adverse effects
  • Delivers critical information for managing seizures
  • Introduces a valuable resource on the feasibility and safety of pediatric non-invasive brain stimulation clinical trials

Phase of Development - Pilot Scale Demonstration. License available for using assessment tool.
