A-klinikka Oy and Neubit Oy announce a partnership to develop biofeedback tools for substance abuse treatment. The aim of the cooperation is to create new services that support recovery from substance abuse problems and complement existing treatment services.
Biofeedback tools measure human physiological activities and provide feedback based on it, in a beneficial form to the user. As an example, you can use the tool to monitor changes in the heart rate variability. With an increase in heart rate, the tool can offer breathing exercises to relieve the feeling of stress and anxiety. In substance abuse treatment, the tools make it possible to offer patients with more concise and individual treatment support.
“We want to boldly develop new, innovative methods with which we can support patient recovery. Biofeedback tools are based on human body functionality and offer a nondrug treatment alternative. The tools complement our existing services in an innovative way” – says Kaarlo Simojoki, CEO of A-klinikka Oy.
Data gathered through the tools can be utilized to monitor rehabilitation in substance abuse treatment. This allows for more precise verification of treatment effectiveness. The tools can be used in conjunction with both digital as well as more traditional substance abuse prevention services.
“Partnership between A-klinikka Oy and Neubit Oy sets the foundation for groundbreaking development work, thanks to which we can renew and modernize substance abuse treatment” – continues Kaarlo Simojoki.
The guiding principal of Neubit operations is to produce information from individual physiological data that can be used to guide and change an individual’s behavior and actions in the direction of defined goals. Substance abuse treatment provides a very suitable framework for this,
“Above all, A-klinikka Oy is a highly appreciated partner due to their expertise in online therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy.” – says Marko Reponen the CEO of Neubit Oy.
