Hello, how are you?

Take a look at the article: https://www.printfriendly.com/print?...vzF-nquq-aaefi

Re: Video Game For ADHD Patients

After reading your post, I was intrigued and looked into it a little. I am also curious how well it works, but the price seems a bit over the top. 99$ for the necessary headset and then an additional 30-50$ a month for the subscription. The company made $138,967 through KickStarter to fund the project. I cannot understand or justify the high subscription fee. Maybe it works great, but without reliable testimonials I cant help but feel that this a little greedy on their part.

Maybe there is a member on here that can attest to its effectiveness, and explain the large monthly fee.

Re: Video Game For ADHD Patients

We always do better with something that's new and exciting.

The question is where there are any long-lasting benefits.

So far there is no replicated research on this that confirms such benefits.

It's interesting that we can't find any reviews by actual users.

When something new comes along people love to try it and review it on youtube,
but I can't find anything on this NeuroPlus therapy.

Re: Video Game For ADHD Patients

It seems similar to Luminosity, when they made claims about it being useful "brain" training and they were forced to change their advertising and its claims that it worked to train your brain. The people who said it worked got better at the game but it did nothing as far real world help goes.

Re: Video Game For ADHD Patients

Well, it says in the article it is not a diagnostic nor a treatment tool.

But is it a novelty ? I thought one could buy that EEG toys at a dollar shop already ?


Who else "binned out" half the article with this funny bin option before even reading ?

Re: Video Game For ADHD Patients

That just seems disgusting! IF their device really helped people with ADHD and IF they really wanted to help people instead of luring people to give them a LOT of money, they'd make something affordable to buy and instead of online "subscriptions", make games to buy, then donate some to schools, but make it available for sale to parents and adults at affordable prices. I HATE greedy companies who exist only to make money off people who are desperate to get better and will spend money on what could be a scam or just not worth the money.
