Title
(EN) System and method to reduce discomfort using nerve stimulation
Abstract
(EN)

A novel method and system for performing transcutaneous magnetic stimulation is disclosed herein. In the method, a first magnetic field is generated using a first magnetic stimulation device for transcutaneously stimulating a treatment area, and a second magnetic field for transcutaneously stimulating the treatment area is generated by a second magnetic stimulation device. In addition, a novel method and system for reducing discomfort caused by transcutaneous magnetic stimulation is disclosed herein. In the method, a first magnetic field is created at a first and second location using a first magnetic stimulation device. The first magnetic field causes magnetic stimulation at the first and second locations. A second magnetic field is created at the second location using a second magnetic stimulation device, thereby reducing stimulation at the second location.
