Safety Concerns: Using HMD During Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I have a question regarding the safety of using the HTC Vive headset during transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) sessions.

For those who may not be familiar, TMS is a non-invasive procedure that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain, often used for treating depression and other neurological conditions. I'm currently undergoing TMS therapy and am curious if there are any potential risks or dangers associated with using my HTC Vive headset during this period.

Specifically, I would like to know:

  1. Could the magnetic fields generated by TMS interfere with the functionality or safety of the HTC Vive headset?
  2. Are there any known adverse effects or complications from using a VR headset during TMS?
  3. Has anyone here had any personal experiences or insights on this matter?

Any information or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help!

Best regards,
