Several years ago, my father had an accident and suffered a brain injury. Being a neuroscience PhD student at the time, I knew that the research of brain plasticity shows that practicing cognitive functions can enhance and even restore those functions. To me surprise, I discovered a reality where patients are sent home after a few months of rehabilitation without any further therapy. I believed that these people deserve a treatment that goes beyond the walls of the rehabilitation clinic and into their home in order to create a continual recovery plan that helps them to reach their goals. This is why I created Intendu.
Together with an amazing team of professionals, including clinicians, computer scientists and game developers, we embarked on a journey to create a solution that will allow the hundreds of millions of people with brain dysfunctions to receive the effective and affordable rehabilitation that they deserve.
