About us

Our team has a dream: to reinvent the way we observe and treat the human brain. Neuroelectrics has created diagnostic and treatment telemedicine wireless platforms based on Starstim and Enobio, combining multichannel transcranial current stimulation such as tDCS with EEG. We aim to help patients recover their brain health in pathologies such as chronic pain and stroke rehabilitation. You can find us in our offices in Boston (MA-US) and Barcelona (Spain).
