1. Long lasting impact: Look beyond the immediate morbidity of COVID-19

Health Footprint of Covid-19If we look beyond the immediate morbidity of COVID-19, we will see that mental illness and economic damage caused by the corona crisis will haunt us over a long time.  What can we do in these challenging times?]

For people who seek help with mental health problems and clinicians who provide treatment, neuroCare offers scalable services that provide the best effective strategies with unique, scientifically proven effects. This achieves superior long-term outcomes compared to what is currently achieved with medication or psychotherapy alone. The use of neuromodulatory techniques can accelerate recovery, reduce suffering and save costs. Start now with neuroCare Solutions!

As you might know, all neuroCare clinics offer cognitive behavioural therapy combined with the latest neuromodulatory techniques, resulting in a remission of about 55 % in the treatment of depression and ADHD [Donse et al, 2018], without the need for first-choice medication or side effects.

2. Teletherapy and digital health

2.1. Online Cognitive Training

We offer an online cognitive rehabilitation program - MyBrainTraining®. The purpose of this program is to allow an individual to engage in meaningful computer-based cognitive therapy at home. Who is it suitable for?

For people with cognitive deficits having problems in:

  • attention/vigilance  
  • speed of information processing
  • verbal and visual learning
  • memory  
  • working memory

These can be people with mental or neurological disorders, suffering from concentration and attention deficits and more. In addition to improved cognitive performance, the training increases the users' activation and motivation. The tasks are designed in such a way that children, young people and elderly people alike understand them well and enjoy the training. This allows to continue a therapy in times of social distancing and isolation.

  • 30 scientifically proven training modules

2.2. Treating depression at home? A first glance!

For those of you who are currently treating patients with transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (also referred to as ‘tDCS’) or repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (also referred to as ‘rTMS’) and expect the current situation might impact the accessibility of these treatments for your patients we suggest considering transitioning these patients to home-based treatment with the  DC-STIMULATOR MOBILE during the crisis.

Ongoing research suggests that tDCS is a safe and effective neurostimulation technique. The neuroCare DC-STIMULATOR MOBILE can be safely self-administered by patients at their home. Just instruct your patients in the use of the stimulator and lend them a device they can take home. Our cloud-based platform help monitor if your patients are following the treatment protocol. Ongoing research suggest tDCS is a safe and beneficial neurostimulation technique.

Please instruct your patients how often they should use stimulation in order to retain the response and effect from your therapies, until patients can safely resume regular visits to the clinic to continue treatment. Learn more about tDCS for your therapy at home under your supervision.
