Dr.-Ing Bernhard Wandernoth

"I have always had a fascination with technology. I managed to survive in school thanks to my hobbies in the field of electronics and radio, after which I studied Electrical Engineering and Information Technology in Munich. Later, I completed a PhD in laser communications systems. My theoretical and practical findings on high-efficiency laser communications systems have since been used in the development of satellite laser terminals as the first high-speed commercial networks in orbit.

When I heard about neurofeedback, it immediately caught my attention. After some research I thought that if only ten percent of the claims in this area are true, I want to be part of it. So, I created a ‘landscape’ of the field, as I was used to as an analyst, and I discovered the Othmer couple and their successful practice in California, authorities in the field. The engineer is used to testing things. So, I attended a course, bought some equipment, and tried neurofeedback on a few people. Indeed, neurofeedback worked. I even managed to make a migraine go away. Convinced, I took responsibility for the development, qualification and regulatory approvals of the products for this group.

I am proud to be able to contribute to technologies that improve the health and well-being of many people. I was surprised to learn that one in ten people suffers from serious mental illness, rather than one in ten, as I initially thought. One in ten people is not able to live a normal, fulfilled life. The fact that our technology can help give these people a chance to live a balanced life motivates our team and partners to face technical challenges and develop solutions every day. The many positive responses from our clients and their patients constantly fuel our motivation. ”
