Developed by Advanced Neuro Technology (ANT), the TMS coil positioning system is called the SmartMove.

"ANT's SmartMove System is a solution for field visualization and temporally accurate targeting within the subject's cranium," said a released statement by ANT. "The Visor Neuro Navigational system is included with ANT's system as a component."

The Visor's software allows users to gauge the depth and location of the brain in real-time by creating 3D images from the MRI. "The robot ensures consistent targeting, regardless of movement by the subject, via motion-detection technology," the release added.
