The spin-off of the Science Park of the Newmanbrain UMH is in luck. The company has been awarded in the V edition of the Innova eVIA awards, specifically in the category “Social and Health Care”. This company specializes in the development of software and hardware for biomedical use, mainly in the areas of neuroscience and biomedicine. The Innova eVIA Awards seek to recognize projects that offer innovative solutions based on the use of ICT and with applications in the field of health or healthcare.
Newmanbrain CEO, Pablo Belmonte, pointed out, this recognition is a great impulse to publicize the work of the company: “This award is the consolidation of our dream, which began several years ago with much effort and enthusiasm. It will allow us to give visibility to our project and make tangible the academic knowledge, an objective that we could not have achieved if it were not for the support received from the Research Group of the Physiology Department of the UMH, from the University itself as well as of our family. ”
The spin-off of the UMH Scientific Park has developed an innovative device with the name fNIR BrainSpy 28 for the analysis of brain activity: a portable system that uses nearby infrared technology (fNIR) to measure and record brain functions. This fNIR BrainSpy 28 device helps to relate the response to certain stimuli (affective, cognitive, etc.) with changes in cerebral blood flow that occurs during mental activity.
Newmanbrain is driven by the former director of the Institute of Neurosciences (IN), a mixed center between the UMH and the Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC), and professor emeritus of the UMH, Carlos Belmonte; by the director of the Department of Physiology of the UMH, Joaquín Ibáñez; by Pablo Belmonte and by Alejandro Méndez.
EL MUNDO newspaper, in its section of Society and Technology of the Valencian Community on April 1, 2019 and in its digital version as in paper, echoes the fNIR BrainSpy 28 device of Newmanbrain developed in the Science Park of the University Miguel Hermandez de Elche (UMH).
Pablo Belmonte, Newmanbrain CEO, describes, during the interview conducted by EL MUNDO, various features and properties that the fNIR BrainSpy 28 Newmanbrain device offers to evaluate a person’s cognitive or emotional functions in a simple and effective way.

During the report, Dr. Joaquín Ibáñez, Project Director, and researcher Miguel Hernández University Sergio Molina have explained some of the functionalities and advantages of our fNIR BrainSpy 28 device of Functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy for the analysis of brain activity .
Newmanbrain, with its device fNIR BrainSpy 28, receives the Seal of Excellence, certificate from the European Commission for the project presented within the Horizon 2020 initiative “Robust, non-invasive, easy-to-use & portable brain monitoring device”.
Seal of Excelence
Seal of Excellence is a certificate delivered by the European Commission, as the institution managing Horizon 2020, the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation 2014-2020.
The event held yesterday March 22, 2018 began at 10:00 am and ended at 15:00 pm, in addition to the presence of prominent personalities related to the field of innovation and technological entrepreneurship.
Taking advantage of the stay in Madrid, CEO Pablo Belmonte held various meetings with various people related to the financial sector and who have shown interest in collaborating or participating with Newmanbrain.
Newmanbrain which is part of the PCUMH is specialized in the development of software and hardware for biomedical use, mainly in the areas of neurosciences and biomedicine.

The spin-off of the UMH Scientific Park Newmanbrain has been chosen as a finalist in the contest “Innova Proyecto del IV Certamen Premios Innova eVIA”. The company is specialized in the development of software and hardware for biomedical use, mainly in the areas of neuroscience and biomedicine. After the first choice of finalists, a jury of experts will conduct a second evaluation in which the winners of each category will be selected. The Innova eVIA Awards seek to recognize the effort in scientific and scientific excellence and innovative solutions and developed services in the field of applied technologiesto Health and Active Independent Living.
As its CEO , Pablo Belmonte, points out, this recognition is an important boost for the company: “Being among the best in the area of applied technology to neurosciences and recognizing the effort made, entails a great satisfaction for our team. ” In addition, as part of its award, Newmanbrain will be able to publicize its project in the exhibition organized by the event. This will take place during the day of the awards ceremony which will be held on Thursday, March 22 in Madrid.
During this event, the spin-off part of the Scientific Park of the UMH will present to the attendees some of the innovative technologies that they have developed for biomedical use. “We will show how our device works for the analysis of brain activity. A portable system that uses near infrared technology (fNIR) to measure and record brain functions,” says Belmonte. Furthermore, the company will show how this device helps to relate the response to certain stimuli (affective, cognitive, etc.) and alsod it relationship with the changes in cerebral blood flow that occurs during mental activity.
Newmanbrain is driven by the former director of the Institute of Neurosciences (IN), a mixed center between the UMH and the Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC), and professor emeritus of the UMH, Carlos Belmonte, by the worker of the Neurosciences Institute Alejandro Méndez, by the director of the Department of Physiology of the UMH, Joaquín Ibáñez, and by Pablo Belmonte. Currently, the company is focused on improving the software and hardware of its device to make it a product of high demand for professionals in Psychology and other potential buyers. Moreover, the company is developing new equipment for the assessment of various biological functions, using fNIR technology.
The Information Club Forum, the University of Alicante and Bankia celebrated the step on Wednesday November 22 a Breakfast-Colloquium dedicated to “Innovation in the Valencian Community” to which Newmanbrain was invited as an innovative company.
Mr. Andrés García Reche, Executive Vice President of the Valencian Innovation Agency, addressed “The role of Innovation in the transformation of the productive model”.
Next, Mr. Andrés Pedreño, President of AlicanTEC, analyzed “Alicante in the Digital Economy”.
Finally, Mr. Francisco Ruiz, Director of Politics and Public Affairs of Google Spain and Portugal, presented “The Google Activate Digital Training Program”.
Closing the event, Google delivered to the Molt Honorable President of the Generalitat, Ximo Puig, the award given to the Valencian Community for its leadership in the training of digital talent.
In Avila (Spain), on July 19, 20 and 21, students of the PhD in Neuroscience at the Universidad Miguel Hernández, Sergio Ortuño, Marcos Mirete and Sergio Molina, as well as the professor of the Department of Physiology Joaquín Ibáñez, presented four papers in the II International Congress of Psychobiology in collaboration with the company Newmanbrain. The common theme of all the works was the near-infrared light technology as a useful tool for affective and cognitive assessment.
In particular the first communication entitled “Mapping conflict onto forehead: a near-infrared approach” is about the emotional reactions we experience in the viewing of images. Using different images of different valence and arousal we have been able to characterize in different spatial and temporal terms the different emotional reactions. The second communication entitled “Mapping mental load onto: forehead: a near infrared approach” talks about the vasomotor oscillations during the accomplishment of an arithmetical type cognitive task. The third, also deals with emotional aspects, under the title of “Mapping startle response onto forehead: a near-infrared approach” but in particular about emotional reactions of the defensive type as the startle response. “A Multimodal system for functional assessment of brain and systemic response” is the title of the fourth communication in which the possibility of making combined registers of near-infrared light spectroscopy together with electroencephalography is presented.
