The BrainCapsule concept is based on extensive clinical experience with cognitive rehabilitation delivered by the leading Nordic rehabilitation sofware engineering company Multimedia J& J Intressi OY. The BrainCapsule integrates rehabilitation software with hardware, creating a customized installation and user interface in cooperation with an Estonian e-training sofware company Juku Lab and a product and industrial design company Taikonaut. The resulting cognitive skills training solution is a user-friendly multi-language platform that is easy to install at any health institution in Europe or elsewhere.
