The award-winning MenteTM is an EEG device that uses neurofeedback technology to help relax the minds of children with autism, enabling them to focus better and engage positively with their environment.
MenteTM is an easy-to-use, effective neurofeedback device for safe home use by children with autism. Its unique patented technology creates personalized binaural beats, which are therapeutic to those who use it. After each daily 40-minute morning session, it issues a report which records and measures the child’s progress. These reports can be stored, uploaded online to the cloud system and easily shared with medical professionals monitoring the users.
MenteTM is CE Approved Medical Device & FDA registered medical device .
MenteTM is a system that incorporates a headband and a software component. The headband has five sensitive EEG electrodes that pick up minute waves (Alpha, Beta and Delta waves) emitted by the brain to provide a clinically comparable EEG representation.
The headband connects to the MenteTM software on the user's PC or Android/iOS smartphone or tablet via a Wi-Fi connection, allowing users to perform their daily routines uninterrupted while it transmits their brainwaves to the PC, smartphone or tablet.
MenteTM interprets these waves, processes them and converts them into binaural beats which are then played back to the child via earphones or speakers, forming the basis of the therapy.
The binaural beats are tailor-made by MenteTM's patented algorithm and vary from session to session and from user to user because our brain is individual, alive and dynamic. (In fact, MenteTM should not be confused with musical therapies on the market that promise to treat autism - unlike those therapies which are not medical, MenteTM is a medical device that is certified by the appropriate health authorities: It plays real-time, personalized, auditory stimulation to the patient that is based on his or her own brain waves during the session.)
Feedback from current MenteTM users (read testimonials here) has been positive and parents report that they find the system easy to operate from home. Some of the benefits resulting from the use of this system include:
People with autism have abnormally high delta brainwaves, which peak constantly, even when they are awake. As Delta brain waves are associated with deep sleep and closed eyes, people on the autism spectrum therefore tend to be isolated, in their own world.
MenteTM uses a specialized system to read the user’s brain activity to identify and reduce these abnormally high delta brainwaves. It does this by creating personalized binaural beats to reduce unwanted signals. This can be compared to noise-reduction headphones, which create counter-noise to eliminate undesirable external noise. The reduction in the users’ delta brainwaves via this daily therapy helps relax the users’ mind to bring about enhanced concentration and communication.
