What is Mente Autism?
Mente Autism uses award-winning technology to help relax the minds of children with autism, enabling them to focus better and engage positively with their environment.
Mente Autism is an easy-to-use, effective neurofeedback system for safe home use by children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). It consists of a headband, an application (app) and a cloud component. Its unique technology creates “tailor-made” sonified neurofeedback for the children who use it.
After each 40-minute morning therapy session, the user can upload the data by synchronising the app (using an Internet connection). Using this data, the Mente Autism cloud service generates a report that records and measures the child’s progress. Each session report can be viewed online or within the app.
Who can use Mente Autism?
Mente Autism is a CE certified medical device that uses neurofeedback* and is intended for use by children on the Autism Spectrum. It is ideal to start using Mente Autism between 3 and 12 years of age. As such, it is therefore important that the child meets certain criteria prior to using the device. In order to assist parents and / or carers to see if the child is suitable to use the device, we have prepared a pre-sales questionnaire that will indicate the child’s suitability. It is important to note that should the system indicate that the device is not
recommended, we encourage parents or carers to refer to their medical professional and carry out a qEEG which will help with a secondary, final assessment.
*Neurofeedback is a non-invasive and safe treatment with no known significant negative effects. Adverse reactions do rarely occur and are known to be relatively transient, users are recommended to stop the treatment and refer to their doctors to determine next steps.
