NEEURO Ultimate Brain Training Wearable with Games
Train your brain for a healthier mind, to achieve better memory, focus, spatial skills and much more
We exercise to keep ourselves physically fit and healthy, to reduce the risk of diseases like heart attacks and strokes. We are able to do the same for our brains.
Neeuro’s solution is a combination of a mobile application containing games and a headband that monitors brainwaves. These games, designed by neuroscientists, game developers and data scientists, are played to stimulate and strengthen the mind.
The mobile application, Neeuro Memorie paired with the headband Neeuro SenzeBand, creates a unique combination that effectively measures brain activities for mind stimulation. This combination helps in the following cognitive functions:
“The good people at Neeuro have come up with both a device and a game of sorts to help keep that brain of yours healthy.” – Tech Storm
Neeuro Memorie uses games to stimulate the brain’s cognitive function in the areas of attention, decision making, memory, multitasking and spatial skills. These games are designed based on neuroscience to ensure focus on the specific cognitive skills.
By playing fun games, the EEG-based Neeuro SenzeBand reads your brain waves and tracks your progress, gives feedback for improvement. With the Neeuro SenzeBand, too, you can control the games with your thoughts, giving it a mind-controlling feature not present with other headbands and training game apps.
Neeuro helps you get back to the basics of mind wellness, and giving you the ultimate brain training experience.
Unlike most brain training applications, Neeuro Memorie uses an EEG headband, called Neeuro SenzeBand, to monitor brain activities during game play. The Neeuro SenzeBand measures brain activities for proper brain stimulation.
Simply put on Neeuro SenzeBand, pair it up with Memorie and start playing the games. Play it with your children, parents, grandparents and all your loved ones; enjoy it as a family.
For an effective brain training, spend a minimum of 15 minutes a day playing the games. Over time you will see an improvement in your cognitive performance.
Track your performance in the games and understand your overall cognition in the areas of Memory, Attention, Spatial Skills, Multitasking and Decision Making.
Children too, can play the cognitive games that are designed to be fun and entertaining. They will be stimulating their minds and giving themselves all the opportunities to enhance their cognitive abilities.
Neeuro Memorie will have 15 games when released. This video highlights 5 games:
Studies have shown that our brain’s performance peaks in the early 20s and the decline begins towards the late 20s. This decline is linear as we advance in age beyond our twenties. With proper brain training, this decline can be delayed, thereby improving cognitive performance.
During game play, Neeuro Memorie continuously measures and evaluates your performance through the Neeuro Learning Matrix (NLM). This is a key differentiation of Neeuro’s Memorie.
The patent pending system and method, NLM, provides a concise analysis for behavioural and mental stages while training your brain with the Neeuro Memorie games.
Find out more information about the NLM here.

7. OTHER QUESTIONS
1a: How will the Neeuro SenzeBand and Neeuro Memorie App help me?
It is a brain training solution that works together; regular use of which will enhance your attention, decision making, memory, multitasking and spatial skills.
1b. How does the Neeuro SenzeBand work? Is it safe?
With its four front EEG sensors and two reference sensor electrodes, the headband accurately reads the brain’s cognitive signals. The sensors use highly conductive elastomers, which capture very low frequency signals. When the headband is placed around your forehead, it records your brain’s activity and senses its overall health. It is non-intrusive and safe to use, with no current or electromagnetic waves that will be sent into your brain. The Neeuro Senzeband has been internationally certified with FCC, IC and CE.
1c. What is EEG and how does it work?
Electroencephalogram, or EEG, records the brain’s electrical activity, through electrodes attached outside of the head, which then transforms the electrical activity into patterns, called brain waves. Read more here.
1d. Is there scientific basis for EEG (electroencephalogram)?
Yes. An EEG test is done to check brain activity and diagnose problems in the brain or in the nervous system. Read more on Wikipedia.
1e. What is the Neeuro Memorie App?
It is a game app best used with the Neeuro SenzeBand. It contains 15 games plus regular new games to be introduced, which are designed to train different aspects of the brain’s cognitive functions – attention, memory, multitasking, spatial and decision-making skills. Memorie evaluates your performance, and guides you through the lively games to achieve the desired results. Read more here.
1f. Why is the Neeuro Memorie App not free like in most wearable devices?
This is the paid version of the app that comes along with the Neeuro SenzeBand. It will contain 15 games as a start and more games will be released regularly. You will be enjoying continual upgrades and frequent new games with this package.
2a. What is the science behind this? How do I know if this works?
Research in this field is on-going and there have been positive results based on certain conditions. We are in the midst of doing our own studies and have compiled a science whitepaper and an animated science explainer video for easy understanding. View them here.
Training for a few hours across a wide variety of brain functions like in some studies, would most likely not gain any real-world benefits in the same way as going to the gym a couple of times per month and doing undirected exercises. It has to be targeted and consistently done.
2b. How often do I need to play the games to see an improvement?
Based on existing research such as the Nature publication [PDF] in 2013, we recommend play to be at least 15-20 minutes per day.
2c: Who is this suitable for?
We want a solution that is suitable for as wide an audience as possible starting from 6 years onwards. If someone already has cognitive decline or a brain condition, we recommend that you consult your doctor first. Just like exercising in a gym will not guarantee that you will not get a heart attack, we cannot claim that using our solution will guarantee that you will not experience cognitive decline or brain diseases.
3. PURCHASE & SETUP
3a: Do I need one headband for each person in my family? Or is this sharable?
The Neeuro SenzeBand is sharable, but there will be no individual scores for you to track and thus the analytics for that account will not be useful. This is not ideal if you want to have own tracking of performance. We recommend that you consider backing the Neeuro Duo or Neeuro Family perks if you want to have more than one person use it.
3b: What colors does this come in?
We currently only have a white version. However, we would love to hear your feedback on other colors you would prefer, so email us at [email protected] let us know!
