Our mission

Mentech Innovation was founded by Erwin Meinders to give a voice to vulnerable people with ununderstood behavior. As a volunteer at Severinus, a care organization for people with intellectual disabilities, he has experienced that people with a complex care need are often insufficiently able to express their emotions.

“His buddy Patrick, a man with a severe intellectual disability, cannot talk. One day his wringing shoes caused pain and discomfort, but this only became clear when his shoes were taken off after a lot of stress. This inspired Erwin to develop a smart sensor system that can recognize stress and emotions. “

Patrick is no exception. Many people with an intellectual disability or dementia are often unable to express their emotions or feelings.

Meet the team

Our young and driven team consists of 25 data scientists, software developers, behavioral experts and healthcare technologists. We believe in the power of co-creation and collaboration. We work intensively with our knowledge partners, including academic workshops and universities, and with our care partners.
