The Ohio State University Medical Center conducted a study with the device on several patients.

The device is called the noninvasive transcranial magnetic stimulator, or (TMS).

The device sends an electric current through a metal coil, creating a magnetic field. When the handheld device is then placed near the person’s head, it gets rid of the migraine.

In the study, half of the patients received their treatment from the device, while the other half had a placebo treatment.

39% of those who had the device as their treatment had no migraine pain afterwards, while 22% of those who received the placebo treatment also had no pain.

The findings will be presented at the annual American Headache Society meeting in Boston, MA.
