Introduction to Neuphony: a product by PankhTech
Neurofeedback has scientifically proven to be a powerful tool to improve the overall health of your brain, including improving memory, sleep quality and reducing stress and anxiety. Neuphony brings to you the benefits of neurofeedback in the comfort of your home with the help of a wearable headband and a mobile application.
The headband measures the electrical activity of your brain while the mobile app recommends scientific meditation techniques and music to achieve your personalised, desired state, based on the sensor data. The idea behind it is – science meets art to create desirable results that are tailor-made to suit your needs.
The founders of Neuphony are Bhavya Madan, 26, and Ria Rustagi, 26 – budding entrepreneurs who successfully completed their BTech in Electronics and Communication from the Jaypee Institute of technology, and further went on to pursue higher education.
The idea of Neuphony comes from a very personal inspiration for them and the company is dedicated to Ria’s sister Pankhuri, after whom the company is named.
Pankhuri got a rare brain infection in 2016 and was in the Stroke ICU for 6 months at the age of 25. Those 6 months were very challenging emotionally, physically, and mentally for the entire family. During that time, they saw a lot of ups and downs, but not knowing what was happening inside Pankhuri’s brain, and why she was unable to talk to her family or move was something Ria couldn’t digest or understand.
It was very difficult to see her in so much pain, not knowing what she was thinking.
Unfortunately, things didn’t go well and she passed away in November 2016.
This experience made Ria realise that more than anything else, she wanted to do something for people that can help them induce healthy brain fitness – and that is how Neuphony was born.
Neuphony is not just a brand but a voice for the brain. People talk about mental health without understanding that it is truly a biological concept and that we have the power to control our brain. Neuphony is a way to help the populace regain the momentum of their brain and develop a better and clearer understanding of who they are.
Bhavya and Ria are the first Indians to work on something like this, and Neuphony is the first device to be developed keeping in mind the Indian market. The complete manufacturing will be done in Delhi, India.
Neuphony is being launched only in Europe and India for presale on 9th September 2020, with delivery dates set for December 2020.
