Who We Are & What We Do

Newmanbrain is an initiative of a scientific and technological based company dedicated to the development of software and hardware instrumentation for biomedical applications mainly in the areas of neuroscience and biomedicine and supported by the University Miguel Hernandez.

Where We are

We are located at the Scientific Park of the University Miguel Hernández of Elche, Spain.

Building Quorum III Science Park. Miguel Hernández University


The main problem for science today is to correlate the activity of diverse areas of the brain with mental functions: Thoughts, emotions, sensations and motor functions. Achieving this will change how professionals evaluate emotional responses, “especially the psychologists” and will allow multiple future applications in different sectors and industries.

Solution / Product

Reduced Size

Reduced Size

Taking psycologists´professional needs into account, we have created a small, portable and simple device that allows the mobility of the subject and effectively measures the brain activity in a non-invasive way.

Excellent Results

Excellent Results

It has been proven both effective and efficient and has even solved technical problems observed in other competitive instruments.

Specialized Software

Specialized Software

We have created software that can integrate different equipment records such as the electroencephalograph and electrocardiograph which can also be displayed in a combined manner, correlating the different variables obtained.

Top Technology

Top Technology

Our devices allow the user to obtain objective multimodal measurements of brain activity associated with specific mental activities for the first time, providing quantifiable information on the characteristics of individual responses to specific tests of perception, emotion or cognitive ability.

Why Newmanbrain?

Newmanbrain is a business project with a high level of personal expertise, technical knowledge and connections with top level international research groups, usually only available to very established companies.

Our system facilitates the evaluation by professionals of brain processes in humans of all ages, reanging from childhood to old age, a time of life when the decline of certain capabilities takes place. All together it has allowed us to perform certain actions and capacity improvements that otherwise independent professional fields would have been extremely difficult to work with different patterns and knowledge.
