The MeRT℠ Process


A customized & targeted approach to Neuromodulation

It is important to us that our clients understand we take a personalized approach for each patient. Therapy begins by identifying where each individual’s brain is having difficulty communicating. These areas are then specifically nurtured to strengthen their functionality.


Step 1

Consultation and Patient Intake

During this step, you will meet with our staff for a detailed explanation of how MeRT could benefit your unique situation. Our clinical provider(s) will review your patient intake forms, questionnaires and have you sign our consent forms. We use these assessments to determine what therapy/therapies are best for you and your desired treatment expectations.

We care about your privacy. All of your personal and health information is protected in accordance with HIPAA guidelines


Step 2

Record EEG

We conduct an eyes-closed 10 minute quantitative electroencephalogram (q-EEG) and an electrocardiogram (EKG) tests that measure brain wave frequencies, heart rate and brain-heart coherence.

Our scientific and clinical teams analyze the results to better understand your brain state.


Step 3

EEG Analysis & Review

We use a patented approach with your neurophysiological data to develop a customized treatment plan that aims to encourage healthy brain communication.

All MeRT treatment parameters are approved by a licensed neurosurgeon or physician.


Step 4

Treatment

Your trained MeRT technician will position the magnetic coil on your head while you are seated comfortably in our treatment room. This coil will deliver your individualized treatment protocol to the targeted region of the brain.

A typical appointment is 45 minutes, 30 minutes of which involve stimulation.


Step 5

Progress Evaluation

We take sequential q-EEG and EKG recordings every 10 treatments to monitor progress and make any necessary modifications to your treatment protocol. This ensures we are always taking the best approach based on your current neurological state. A typical course of MeRT varies, but can range between 4-6 weeks on average, Monday through Friday.

- My anxiety, depression and irritability dropped to low to non-existent by the end of therapy. I scored them poor on the above Likert scale because they have diminished substantially. I still had some stressors from daily life, but I was able to handle it with a much better mood and mental resilience. The normal stressors did not affect me like before treatment. I felt better able to handle them. - USN, SEAL, RET

- About 8 years ago I received 2 back to back concussions and my world went upside down. I did not function at a normal level and could not carry out normal day to day tasks. We have been to 100's of different doctors and specialists over the past 8 years that have diagnosed me with a variety of things ranging from early onset dementia to just simply depression. This treatment has given me a new chance at life. I am more clear, productive, and creative than I have been in years. I am also able to communicate better and perform more normal day to day tasks. The MeRT program has not only changed my life but my family's life as well. I thank this program for everything it has done and hope that more people can be helped by it too. - Family member of a Veteran, SEAL

We appreciate the flexibility and professionalism of the team. They went above and beyond to work with our son and make him comfortable during treatment. -Parent of a pediatric patient

Dr. Dave and Marty are amazing and well knowledgeable of the equipment and therapy. I had my two year old with me during every session for my 7 year old and they were so kind and patient during the treatment with my girls. They care and want to help the patient. -Parent of a pediatric patient

MeRT and the NEUCOA Team were Game Changers. David and Marty were so patient, caring and professional. They made me feel comfortable and relaxed, looking forward to each new day and another treatment that made me feel like I had more confidence and control over my life, my work, my thoughts and my emotions. I was truly in a judgment free place so expressing what I was feeling came easily and naturally, directly helping in treating my psyche, by asking me every day what my level of pain, anxiety, irritability, depression and assigning each my assessment value. I was consciously aware that each day was better than the last. - USN, Master Chief, RET

I had reached out to another BTC clinic yet they wanted to communicate via text. We were still researching the treatment and needed questions answered. We reached out to NEUCOA and David answered all of our questions and even gave us suggestions for accommodations! At the facility we were treated like family by David and Marty. They went out of their way to ensure that our boys felt comfortable and at home. They cared about every detail to ensure the best outcome. While we there, one of our boys had a birthday , that Morning David and Marty greeted him with a box of delicious Duck Donuts and a card! They are truly amazing and we can’t wait to go back in a few months for further treatment ! - Parent of a pediatric patient


The subtle changes in Cezar's behavior have been life altering. It is our hope when he physically returns to school and points beyond the treatments have opened a pathway for other modalities and therapies to be more effective. David and Marty have been exceptionally compassionate with Cezar and all of their clients as I have personally observed. They were able to make an otherwise difficult situation easier and provided insight of the technology for a lay person to understand; this on top of their passion to truly help others. We as parents cannot thank them enough for their work and commitment to help others. - Parent of a pediatric patient
