EQ Academy uses games to protect young brains
Designed for use by young people and those who care for them within schools, sports teams, and families
The world’s first mobile, gamified, FDA-cleared neurological assessment tool
We want the best for our kids. For parents and those who administer youth, we push them to explore their potential, whether through academics, athletics or otherwise. Yet, the very nature of their youthful energy includes risk, particularly to brain injuries that can affect their future.
EQ Academy was designed for the ongoing monitoring and protection of their most important organ: their brain. By playing mobile video games they already enjoy, EQ offers them the best opportunity to ambitiously pursue their goals. For the price of a latte per month, there is no better investment than protecting these young brains.
“Having specialized in Neurology for several decades, I’ve never had someone tell me that doing traditional clinical neurological testing is enjoyable. EQ has changed that. They have made it fun, without compromising on the medical legitimacy, and I am thrilled that this innovation could lead to more people taking care of their brain health.”

Data-rich Dashboard System for Instant Assessment
Administrators can dive deeper on our EQ web dashboard for intensive, real-time evaluation and use in medical follow-up. The analytics and depth of data presented may assist parents and educators identify youth who may be struggling with other psychosocial or mental health issues.
Engaging & Fun
Studies show that 90% of youth play video games. EQ makes that ‘fun’ more productive by producing important brain health data.
HOW IT WORKS
Schools/Teams can set testing schedules, send reminders, and review data in real-time while youth create their healthy range of results by having fun.
If an injury or concerning test result takes place, it is time for a qualified practitioner to assess the thorough range of exportable data.
“EQ covers all the bases. It is mobile, scientifically sound, affordable, covers multiple areas of brain function, and it is enjoyable to use. Other platforms may have one or two of these attributes, but EQ hits all the marks.”
