Our vision

Access to effective therapy for neurological conditions for all who need it

We believe that every person is entitled to promising therapy, at the place and time it is needed. We have developed our teora® mind product on the basis of this fundamental conviction. teora® mind is a software application that supports people with cognitive impairments on their way back to everyday life through lifelike cognitive training in virtual reality.

We work scientifically

The basis of our product development lies in scientific research. We are guided by current research findings and conduct our own studies. In order to make our product as effective as possible, teora® mind was also developed together with those treating and affected by the disease. Further development also takes place in close cooperation.

We develop certified medical devices

Unlike common suppliers in the market, we are a certified medical device manufacturer. Our medical devices are developed in compliance with the applicable medical device laws and carry the CE mark based on the EU Directives 2017/745 (MDR). Among other things, this means that our products have undergone clinical evaluation and have thus been tested for performance and safety. This test is repeated at regular intervals. In addition, we use a certified quality management system (DIN EN ISO 13485). As a result, we are committed to the highest quality standards.

We use the latest technology

The foundation of our products is Virtual Reality (VR). This technology allows us to create an immersive therapy environment. Users have the impression that they are actually in the virtual environment and that this environment is real. We use this effect to create lifelike everyday scenarios in which, for example, the refrigerator is sorted or coffee is made. This significantly improves the transfer of learning and thus the prospect of training success. At the same time, possible sources of danger can be eliminated and monotonous activities that are difficult to repeat in everyday life can be trained in a playful way.

Experience with teora® mind

For us, people are at the center of everything we do. They are personal stories that encourage us on our way. One story that inspired us is Frank’s.

Living with anterograde amnesia

Frank, a 49-year-old family man and husband, suffered cardiac arrest during a routine procedure. Since then, he has suffered from anterograde amnesia. This means that it is no longer possible for him to remember new things. Even important emotional experiences are quickly forgotten. His brain tries again and again to make sense of his environment. This requires a lot of energy and drains the attention span. Frank can’t take on anything anymore. He cannot plan anything for the future. An ever-widening gap in his identity emerges. Between who he used to be and who he is now. Although new things are permanently present in everyday life, they no longer become part of his personality. For Frank, time stood still before his surgery.
His treating neuropsychologist Helene Schwarz reported, „Since he doesn’t feel sick, it’s especially hard to motivate him. Doing brain performance training doesn’t fit with his self-image. Frank would need individual neuropsychological therapy, but outpatient care is poor. Neuropsychologists are few and far between. Some health insurers don’t even know that this specialty exists. Nor do they know what can be accomplished here. Frank’s training potential is thus not being exploited, and if he does not train, his cognitive performance will continue to decline. In addition, he rarely has a sense of achievement. Although he cannot remember failures, it can be observed that he is no longer the cheerful person he used to be. He is becoming more and more listless. The family suffers greatly as a result.“

Frank’s experience with teora® mind

„VR goggles were a completely new experience for Frank. He’s usually skeptical of computer-based training.“ Nevertheless, Helene Schwarz decided to use teora mind in his therapy. „We didn’t think he would be able to handle the operation. We thought he would be overwhelmed with the new environment and take the glasses off right away. But the opposite was the case: Frank had enormous fun trying out the virtual world. He coped well and was very focused – „like being in a tunnel. He is otherwise extremely distractible. The application required attention and memory skills on the one hand and action planning on the other. We have rarely seen him so motivated since the illness. He was so happy to feel a sense of achievement, proud to have completed the level. He would have loved to keep playing.“
