Somatics' Thymatron® IV ECT unit Today, the Somatics Thymatron® ECT instrument is the world’s most advanced, reliably delivering brief-pulse stimuli of proven superior seizure-inducing efficacy. The Thymatron® instrument is the first modern device to provide an Ultrabrief stimulus. It remains the only one that can deliver the same stimulus across the entire dosage range.

The unequaled safety record of the Thymatron® instrument comes from its multiple redundant levels of error protection and operating efficiency. These reduce complexity and make it easy to use.
Several proprietary computer methods in the Thymatron® instrument automatically provide optimal stimulus delivery, seizure quality analysis, and seizure endpoint determination. This information is printed in a concise end-of-treatment report.
