BrainFx was founded by two Occupational Therapists who realized that the results of traditional standardized assessment tools were not consistent with their functional observations of people with mild to moderate dysfunction. More complex functional cognitive skills were missed, and cognition was often measured in isolation, missing the critical impact that physical and psycho social challenges can have on functional cognition.

BrainFx was founded by two Occupational Therapists who realized that the results of traditional standardized assessment tools were not consistent with their functional observations of people with mild to moderate dysfunction. More complex functional cognitive skills were missed, and cognition was often measured in isolation, missing the critical impact that physical and psycho social challenges can have on functional cognition. In order to assess people with mild to moderate dysfunction they found they needed to pull together an eclectic battery of tools, but still saw a gap.They recognized the significant need for a comprehensive assessment tool for people with brain disorders, sensitive to mild dysfunction and applicable to real life activities.
Assessments on the market were missing milder dysfunction from traumatic brain injury and early signs of Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia.
Their frustration in practice inspired BrainFx. Passionate about using neurofunctional assessment and intervention, they view BrainFx as the opportunity to combine technology, clinical knowledge and research to deliver unique insights to health care teams to positively impact children and adults globally.
The company has three commercialized assessments in market - BrainFx 360, BrainFx SCREEN, BrainFx Virtual Care Assessment and is currently validating a driving screen for impairment from cannabis. BrainFx Assessments currently only assist clinicians in better understanding their patients' neurofunction (clinical decision support) and do not make any diagnostic claims.
