About us

Mentis Cura is a digital diagnostics company that uses machine learning to diagnose disorders of the central nervous system, such as dementia and ADHD. Mentis Cura's technology builds on a unique database of more than 3,000 EEG recordings from individuals with various brain disorders, many of whom have been followed clinically for over a decade.

Specialising in statistical pattern recognition systems, Mentis Cura has developed new neurodiagnostic aids that help identify objective physiological evidence of central nervous system disorders and monitor pharmaceutical interventions.

Established in Iceland in 2004 by PhD physicist Kristinn Johnsen, Mentis Cura is now headquartered in Oslo, Norway and has operating entities in Reykjavík, Iceland, and Tokyo, Japan. Mentis Cura currently has one CE marked product - Sigla® - on the market and distributors in numerous countries.
