Our Values

Cure Your Brain Without Drugs

Efficacy

NEWROFEED is the largest randomized controlled neurofeedback trial ever undertaken in ADHD comparing neurofeedback with methylphenidate. Several clinical trials have been conducted in focused therapeutic areas: mild cognition-Alzheimer, chronic back pain, post trauma rehabilitation, depression, etc. Gold standards of Good Clinical Practices and benefit/risk ratio outcome are our priority.

Patient Respect

We’ve developed a non-invasive therapy that — alone or in tandem with psychotropic drugs — holds enormous promise for patients, their families, physicians, and payers.

Team Work

Mensia’s success is built on a multidisciplinary approach, combining science, clinical development, and commercialization expertise.
