We work to help migraine sufferers

Worldwide 1 in 7 suffer from migraines.
It is recognized as the most disabling disease for people under the age of 50. Migraine is a complex brain disorder that is under-recognized, and under-treated.
We want to do change this.

We develop medical technologies for improved brain health, specializing in neurology and neuropsychology. Our first product is a non-pharmacological preventive migraine treatment utilizing machine learning and artificial intelligence. By the use of data science and deep medical knowledge, we aim to become world leading on treating brain disorders by the use of technology.

Based on research from Norway’s leading technology university

Nordic Brain Tech AS was founded at The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and the university hospital St.Olavs Hospital. Years of research on migraine headaches by neurologists and neuroscientists resulted in a new way of treating the condition.

A diverse team

Our team consists of three engineers and three medical doctors. We cover competence within neurology, neuropsychology, and the field of non-pharmacological treatment methods. The engineers are specialized in machine learning and robotics. Our main office is in Oslo Science Park in Oslo, Norway. The research department is present at St.Olavs Hospital and NTNU in Trondheim.
