DCU Alpha based company Actualise announces telehealth brain training available across Ireland

Ireland’s leader in brain training and neurofeedback services, Actualise, based in DCU’s Innovation Campus (DCU Alpha), has announced its expansion into online neurofeedback.

Actualise, Ireland’s leader in brain training and neurofeedback services, has just announced its expansion into remote neurofeedback services, provided via an online telehealth platform. Following on their partnership last year with Singapore-based brain health company, Cognifyx, this sees Actualise take another brain health innovation into Ireland, focusing specifically on the attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) market.

“With recent scientific reviews showing neurofeedback to be as effective as medication in treating ADHD, but without the side-effects, this is now a viable first line treatment for ADHD, accessible from anywhere in the country” says Dr. Michael Keane, founder and CEO of Actualise. “This new online neurofeedback service, supervised by our clinicians here in Dublin, removes many of the current obstacles to accessing our services. It’s cheaper, easier to use, does not require repeated trips to Dublin, and now makes a top-quality service accessible to all regions in Ireland.”

Following the opening of a clinic in Singapore last year, this is another exciting move for Actualise, who are merging traditional approaches to mental health with new technologies in the area. The system, which can be used at home but is supervised and supported by their Psychology Team in Dublin, uses 3D brain imaging to personalise treatments for each user, thereby increasing its benefit.

Actualise aims to bring innovative brain solutions to a range of psychological disorders and peak brain performance in Ireland. Our clients include children and adults with ADHD, depression, anxiety or stress, and professional sports people (Actualise worked with Connacht Rugby for the two years up to their famous Pro-12 victory in 2016). Since their foundation in 2012, Actualise has seen over 600 clients.
