AR Shaping Autism Treatment: Brain Power’s Empowered Brain Suite

As technology continues to make strides in the realm of mental health, one company stands out for its groundbreaking work in utilising Augmented Reality (AR) to support individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Brain Power, a Massachusetts- based company, has developed the Empowered Brain Suite, an innovative system that harnesses the power of AR technology to assist in the treatment of autism. 

Brain Power’s Empowered Brain Suite offers a unique approach to autism treatment by seamlessly integrating AR technology into therapy sessions. At the heart of the system lies the Empowered Brain AR Glasses which are a wearable device equipped with a camera to capture the user’s field of view.

The AR glasses utilise real-time visual feedback and AR overlays to facilitate skill development in areas crucial to individuals with ASD. The system includes a range of applications and interactive modules designed to improve social interactions, emotion recognition, eye contact and language development. Users are guided and motivated to practice and refine essential skills through visual prompts, social stories and engaging characters. 

Benefits of the Empowered Brain Suite:

  1. Enhanced engagement and motivation; AR captivated individuals with ASD through its immersive and interactive nature. Boosting their engagement with therapy sessions by the use of visual prompts and characters. 
  2. Targeted skill development; The Empowered Brain Suite addresses specific challenges faced by individuals with ASD, offering tailored interventions to improve social and communication skills. The AR overlays provide real-time guidance and feedback, facilitating skill acquisition in a structured and controlled manner. 
  3. Personalised and data-driven approach; the systems data collection component enables therapists and caregivers to track progress, customise interventions and provide personalised feedback. The ability to analyze user interactions and outcomes allows for targeted adjustments and individualized treatment plans. 

While the Empowered Brain Suite shows promise, there are a few potential drawbacks. As with many emerging technologies, the cost and accessibility of the Empowered Brain Suite may be limiting factors for widespread adoption. Secondly, the Empowered Brain Suite should ideally complement rather than replace traditional therapies. Collaboration between AR technology and the expertise of therapists is crucial to maximizing its effectiveness as a supportive tool. 

Nonetheless, Brain Power’s Empowered Brain Suite showcases the immense potential of AR in revolutionizing the treatment of ASD. By merging AR technology with therapy sessions, the suite offers personalised interventions, targeted skill development and enhanced engagement for individuals with ASD. Should we expect to see a new wave of technology-driven therapy?
