BrainTrip has developed, scientifically tested, and validated an electroencephalogram (EEG) based algorithm for the reliable detection of mental impairment. Such impairment can be the result of early-stage dementia. Our algorithm is paired with a third party EEG and used in elderly care facilities as a screening tool for dementia. Medical dementia workups are expensive and invasive, therefore having a screening tool to determine whether such procedures are worthwhile is of great benefit to patients and physicians. Our method works best for people over 60, when the risk for early dementia starts to steeply rise. The test can be applied in a matter of minutes and is completely non-invasive: no needles, chemicals, or radiation exposure. After the test, the client is told that their results show no cognitive impairment, or, if this is not the case, they are advised to seek further diagnostic tests with their physician.
BrainTrip was founded by David Sakić and Jurij Dreo, a pair of lifelong brain enthusiasts, with backgrounds in cognitive science and neuroscience. Combined, Jurij and David have more than 20 years of experience in analysing EEG data, and they have been working on the BDI for the past 5 years.
BrainTrip’s main goal is to unlock the hidden potential of EEG as a screening and diagnostic tool.
Dementia is just the beginning. In the future, we will also tackle other brain disorders that lack objective diagnostic tools, such as ADHD and depression.
