# Our Story
BrainFx was founded by Tracy Milner and Heather Condello. Tracy and Heather are both Occupational Therapists who have practiced extensively in the area of neurorehabilitation with adults and children and led multi-disciplinary healthcare organizations for the past eighteen years.
# TRADITIONAL ASSESSMENTS NOT TRANSLATING TO FUNCTION
In their practice, it became apparent to Heather and Tracy 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 psychosocial challenges can have on functional cognition. In order to assess people with mild to moderate dysfunction they found they were needing to pull together an eclectic battery of tools but still saw a gap.
# NEED FOR ASSESSMENT SENSITIVE TO MILDER DYSFUNCTION
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 early signs of dementia and milder signs of concussion. 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 and make a difference globally in health outcomes. positively impact children and adults globally. more
