Enabling better brain health
At huru we are passionate about improving brain health. We all have different experiences; some have family members with dementia, some with Epilepsy, some with sleep disorders, others faced challenges with mental health, and others simply frustrated at not fully utilising their brain. Our top criteria for joining the team is that you are passionate about the mission. We are engineers, scientists and medical professionals, spread across Europe, Asia and the USA, although our home is in Bristol, UK.
Passionate about finding solutions to improve brain health, driven by their own experiences of dementia and stroke, Ed and Josh founded huru in 2021.
By combining the latest microchip fabrication technology breakthroughs with emerging neuroscience research they started developing hardware and software and trialing what could work.
Soon after building their first product they partnered with Neurowyzer, a Singapore based neuroscience company pioneering in digital brain health assessments.
Together along with funding from the European Regional Development Fund, partnerships with Plymouth university and accelerators linked with University College London they are translating cutting edge research into products that improve brain health.
