A solution for a 1 billion person challenge

People with neurodisorders often require multiple forms of long-term treatment following the diagnosis of the disorder. While there have been significant advancements in the past decades in neurorehabilitation and neural repair, the current healthcare landscape has not yet produced an in-home neurorecovery solution that can be remotely managed with digital tools.
The company's founding partners identified this need and set out to build a one-of-a-kind team that shares a common vision of developing a neurological recovery solution for neurodisorder patients around the world.
Today our team consists of a multidisciplinary group of highly talented individuals with extensive backgrounds in a wide range of fields, from data science and machine learning to neurology and neuroscience. We are backed by a strong advisory board of experts in the fields of AI, neurology, and neuroscience as well.

Our journey began with one person

“My son, Lear, was born with familial dysautonomia, a rare genetic disorder that affects the development of the autonomic nervous system, and has no cure to date.
As a father and a physicist, I was not ready to accept the fact that Lear, and people like him, would never be able to recover from their disorders. Examining the available treatment options, I realized that I must find an alternative solution to treat the core of his syndrome, not just its symptoms.
After extensive research, I identified a promising path, and when I realized that the same solution can be applicable for different types of neurodisorders, I created the idea for BrainQ’s technology.
My vision is to develop an accessible treatment for Lear and other neurodisorder patients that allows for continuous care throughout their entire recovery path. I want to ensure that neurodisorder patients around the world can maintain their daily schedules while still receiving treatment, alleviating the burden on patients and their loved ones.  
Today, with the help of our talented team at BrainQ, this vision is on the path to reality.”
