With over 35 million people diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) (World Health Organization, 2011), Proton Labs and its partner Mind Plus have developed Mind Plus Professional – an enterprise system that helps clinicians address the causes of ADHD and emotional intelligence conditions, while at the same time allowing them to treat more patients.

By using Mind Plus Professional, clinicians can treat ADHD more effectively  by using real-time neuro-feedback data. Through their patients playing PC and tablet games, clinicians can see how these patients think and engage in game scenarios that stimulate cognitive brain capabilities. Brainwave data processed by the Mind Plus Professional wireless headset helps clinicians to provide detailed clinical assessments of patients. Mind Plus Professional represents a breakthrough for children under 6 years of age who can’t be treated using medication.

“This product has great potential for commercialisation globally, due to its highly innovative method of helping children with attention deficit disorder”, – says Rafał Aleksandrowicz – CEO of Mind Plus, a psychologist specialising in ADHD therapies. He continues, “Due to the opportunities we have in Ireland, we decided to organise our distribution channels, devices and the associated software right here. Together with Proton Labs we are planning further investments and the production of a wider range of products and services.”

The cooperation is a combination of Polish research & development and Irish business models and provides a major opportunity to revolutionise the global approach to the treatment of people with ADHD. I can be used as a safe and effective alternative or in addition to the pharmacological therapy and the other therapies being used today around the world.

Proton Labs is a fast-growing Irish company that champions Prototype as a Service (PaaS) – to start-ups, academic labs and multinationals. The Proton Labs operational model fasttracks its clients 1st sale so that their business model can be  established for seed funding purposes.
