Finally, we’re making it possible for you to access the same brain enhancement training used by top athletes and executives to improve mental well-being, performance & overall health. With Mendi you can strengthen your brain anytime, anywhere.
Thanks to our Kickstarter community, we reached our goal within 90 minutes! If you’re new to Mendi and short on time, here’s what you need to know:
We're bringing the brain training clinics to you. Brain training clinics are hard to access or afford, with each session costing hundreds of dollars. With Mendi we are bringing the same training, with added improvements, to the comfort of your home. Mendi is the first clinical-grade brain training product designed for home use.
With Mendi, you can strengthen your brain in a fun and easy way. Simply control a training game with your brain.
Your brain learns from feedback. Through live visual feedback of what your brain is doing, you are able to train it to function better - the method is called neurofeedback.
Mendi’s headset measures your brain activity through a unique combination of features, including blood flow and oxygenation in the Prefrontal Cortex (PFC). Think of it as measuring fuel in your brain’s control center.
Your combined brain activity is then visualized in a training game - a game you control using only your brain. Just relax and focus, and you will easily control the game.
The PFC is the control center of your brain. Increasing blood flow, nutrients and oxygenation to this area strengthens it over time—which is what you learn to do with Mendi!
Mendi makes brain enhancement training a fun and easy part of your daily routine. See your brain activity increase as it happens and track your progress over time. The app and exercises are free to use and we’re adding new features weekly.
Follow your progress in the app Journal with a simple overview of all your training sessions saved in one place.

See our testimonial video.
—"My golf game continues to be better, and I have no other way to explain that than Mendi” — The Gadgeteer
— "Mendi is the brain workout you didn’t know you needed” — Explica
— "Keeping yourself in shape is important. Often overlooked, your brain can be trained just like you would a bicep. Mendi makes it possible, using lab-tested tech with a combo of brain-monitoring wearable and an app” — Uncrate
— "It's actually very relaxing and might help relieve some of the stress you're feeling during the COVID-19 health crisis" — Techwalla
—“In the meantime, I did my own little non-scientific experiment to test the effectiveness. Each day I would first play the game without focusing on the little ball. Then I would play the game again, and try to focus on the ball as much as I could. The second instance resulted in a higher score every single time, in some instances a much higher score. Having tried this experiment 7 or 8 times, in my experience the tech works as advertised” — Gadgets & Wearables
Mendi is the first clinical-grade brain training product designed for home use.
Traditionally, brain enhancement training is considered expensive, with people paying up to $15,000 or more for clinical neurofeedback, in their quest to improve health and performance. With Mendi you can perform unlimited clinical-grade neurofeedback training for a fraction of the price.
In their attempts to improve brain function, most traditional methods (excluding drugs) such as meditation, therapy, and mind exercises (puzzles, sudokus etc.) all focus on training the mind in order to try to strengthen the brain. While it’s possible to make some improvements to your brain by training your mind, Mendi lets you train your brain directly.
As we push ourselves to always achieve more, the limiting factor is not our physical capacity but rather our mental fitness. Our ability to focus, create, process and remember depends on our brain. That’s why CEOS, artists, athletes, and NASA astronauts use techniques like brain training to improve their cognitive function and overall health.
Here is what you need to know about Mendi and other products:
Just like your body, your brain needs to stay active to be strong. Your brain consists of networks. It creates pathways automatically, helping you function without having to make decisions every second. These pathways become your brain's habits.
Unfortunately, your brain will also naturally develop negative pathways. These negative pathways appear in different forms, including stress, anxiety, or inability to focus. These negative pathways form naturally over time and in response to different situations.
These negative pathways will often increase if they are not addressed, leading to poor mental or physical health.
Just like the muscles in your body, you can train your brain to be stronger. When you train your brain, you learn to stimulate the flow of essential nutrients to the areas of the brain that need it most.
Neuroplasticity is the ability to naturally strengthen your brain. By training and strengthening your brain, you can create new pathways that allow for more mental flexibility and higher function.
The Mendi headset uses advanced fNIRS technology to monitor activity in your brain. The app provides training exercises, requiring focus and calm to control the game, subsequently increasing activity in your prefrontal cortex, which controls your brain’s pathways.
Here’s a peak at why experts are obsessed with Neurofeedback Brain Enhancement Training:
Brain enhancement training is used in clinics all over the world, our mission is to bring the clinic to you with Mendi - the first of its kind for home use. All great things must start somewhere, and Mendi has been tried and tested in clinics across Europe.

A throwback to when it all started…
Mendi is designed and manufactured in Sweden. We selected each of our suppliers with an emphasis on detail and delivery.

Looking for ways to improve their own mental fitness, Mendi founders Sammy and Rickard discovered the challenges to accessing neurofeedback technology and training. After getting heavily involved with neurofeedback clinics, they saw the lives of many people improve with this form of training and decided to use their engineering backgrounds to create Mendi.
“We’re driven by the technology and research available today to make brain-changing experiences available to everyone. As the science continues to advance and we learn from our customers, we are dedicated to continuously improving Mendi and the benefits it can provide our users.”
And with a growing team, we are chasing a shared goal to build the world’s most powerful brain training product for everyday use. We know the impact improved mental fitness can have on our daily lives and long term health, and we believe that access to the best form of training should be available to everyone. Join the Mendi journey and help us make it a reality!
We’re launching Mendi on Kickstarter to bring together a community of people who are passionate about our mission and believe in our potential. We want to build the future of Mendi with you!
As a token of appreciation, we’re offering discounts and early access before Mendi hits retailers. Missing out on Mendi now means waiting until 2021!
