Neuro Hero is a home based, family support package that uses a series of innovative apps for mobile devices and PCs. Neuro Hero will provide a subscription based support package which will include therapeutic activities, communication activities, training videos, carer support tools and educational materials.
Through using these innovative support tools, Neuro Hero will not only improve cognition and communication capability for the person with a communication difficulty, but also improve social interaction between the individual and their family and friends.
With approximately 250,000 people affected by communication difficulties in Ireland and approximately 388 million people around the world, the potential for Neuro Hero to make an impact is huge.
We aim to reconnect families through rehabilitation, interaction and education.
