about us

BrainChild Technologies is creating the first device to help caregivers regularly monitor their infant for hearing loss with our smart pacifier platform. Hearing loss during early childhood can mean missing a critical window for language development, and yet we lack good tools for regular hearing screening in the medical home. Our aim at BrainChild is to begin filling in the gap in hearing screening tools with age-appropriate behavioral assessments of hearing, starting with a measure of sucking behavior for babies from birth to 12mos. By providing a behavioral, low-cost assessment of a baby's response to sound, we aim to improve the quality and efficiency of hearing screenings both at the audiologists office and in the medical home.

our solution

is helping all children better access regular hearing screenings during the most important time for language development.
