Atentiv

Atentiv is a repurposed combination treatment for ADHD company.

Atentive is a digital psychiatric therapeutic company that develops and markets a platform of digital therapeutics and services targeted at the prevention and treatment of childhood developmental disorders, beginning with ADHD. The company specializes in delivering personalized and non-pharmacologic digital learning systems to improve cognitive function in children and adults.



Their lead product, ATENTIVmynd Games is a non-pharmaceutical, digital cognitive training and therapy platform designed to provide sustained and measurable improvements in attention and inhibitory control for individuals when delivered in clinic, school, or home.



 It uses the company's FOCUSforward learning and dynamic modelling methodologies. The product platform is delivered via action adventure video games in which the player uses their brain waves, related to their attention state, to control the speed of an action character while the player is presented with multiple dynamic challenges that target, measure, and teach the underlying cognitive skills of attention and inhibitory control.





The game is personalized through 'in-game' proprietary calibrations of attention levels and the player's relative performance in moving through multiple challenge tasks that teach and sustain new cognitive skills. Each ATENTIVmynd Game takes about eight hours of about 24 training sessions that is spread over 4 to 8 weeks. Each adventure story takes about 20 to 25 minutes to play through to the end.



ATENTIVE is planning sequals and customized applications to provide higher-level cognitive skill achievement.
