iPhone Application Is The First To Provide A Natural Treatment Option For Millions of ADHD Patients.
PETERBOROUGH, ON, July 30, 2013 /CNW/ - MindMed is announcing today the release of its first mobile application for consumers. The app enables Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) patients to treat their condition by increasing their concentration, attention, and focus through a program that is optimized for their mobile device.
"While similar digital treatment options exist, they can cost in excess of $500 and are exclusive to desktops and laptops," said co-founder Eytan Shleizer, who himself had been diagnosed with ADHD. "Although they're effective, we wanted to make this technology accessible to everyone. That's why we decided to go mobile and why we're charging only a fraction of the price."
The new ADHD Treatment app utilizes scientifically designed exercises that work by training specific core cognitive skills such as patience and impulse control, skills that are underdeveloped with ADHD patients.
Exercises are designed to be engaging for both children and adults, and are based on proven clinical technology shown to diminish ADHD symptoms. By breaking the exercises into 1-2 minute segments, the app enables ADHD patients to effectively connect with the treatment, whether at home or on-the-move.
"The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that nearly 5.5 million school aged children have ADHD in the US alone," said co-founder Willem Isbrucker. "A lot of people are apprehensive about pharmaceutical treatments and are searching for natural alternatives, that's where MindMed comes in."
The ADHD Treatment app can be downloaded for iOS here for US$9.99.
