We are Brainhero GmbH, a life science startup based in Vienna. We help people with neurological impairments to live towards their full brain potential – to give them a chance to be an active member of society.
That’ s the way it is. The best ideas and the corresponding strength and stamina usually come when you are affected yourself. This is what happened to Christof Götz and his wife Christine Hartlieb-Götz. Their daughter was diagnosed with autism at the age of 4.
On the one hand, appropriate therapy and training sessions were hard to come by, on the other hand, it turned out that even these few sessions meant a lot of effort. The desire for an additional therapy and training option at home and the therapist’s recommendations gave rise to the idea of using neurofeedback in a mobile form.
The two founded the company MyMind and set themselves the goal of developing a training method for home use that was as cheap and simple as possible. In cooperation with various experts, they came up with a concept for a computer game that is not controlled by buttons, but solely by brain activity: Brainhero
A future that needs vision
Brainhero’s vision is to help people with neurological impairments realise their full brain potential using affordable and widely available technologies that are easy to use. Thus, parallel to the development of Brainhero for children with ASD (=Autism Spectrum Disorder), the adapted solution for ADHD (=Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) diagnosed children and adolescents between 6 and 18 years of age has already been developed. At the same time, Brainhero is already working on promising topics in the field of dementia therapy.
