About Brain Power

Brain Power, LLC, is a neuroscience-based tech startup headquartered in Cambridge, MA, with strong ties to MIT, Harvard, and Stanford. We make gamified, AI-based wearable systems to help assess and coach people with brain-related challenges. Our systems run on smartglasses such as Google Glass or competing headsets from Epson, Intel and others. (Note: Google (X) recently released the next version of Glass. Brain Power is one of their few partners (listed here), allowing us to resell the device and access many resources specially for partners.)

Our flagship product suite, for Autism, includes apps that give children (or adults) prompts as to what other people are feeling; deliver videogame-like coaching on face-directed gaze; tutor reading and conversation skills; help users reduce repetitive motor behaviors and underlying stress; give teachers and parents numerical progress reports and notifications when a child is about to have a meltdown or wander off; and much more.

We also offer customized packages that address needs related to traumatic brain injury, job (re-)training, job coaching, eldercare, and objective measurement of behavior in support of clinical trials. Our overall aim, that binds these together, is to unlock the potential of the challenged brain. We are a truly and deeply Mission-focused company.  

If you are are passionate, sharp, and have the skills and aptitude we need, there is a place for you at Brain Power!
