New research at the University of Cincinnati will test a non-invasive brain technology to treat stroke patients, reports USA Today's Cincinnati affiliate.

The method, called transcranial magnetic stimulator (TMS), is administered through a device placed on the head that send low-frequency, painless magnetic pulses through a patient. It helps to reduce the brain activity on a person’s non-injured side to help the injured side of the body attempt to recover better.

In addition to the TMS system, patients will work with an occupational therapist to help regain strength in weakened parts of their body.
