About Mentech

Located in Eindhoven, Mentech is a pioneer in health technology. Our mission is to enhance the lives of people with intellectual disabilities or dementia through innovative solutions.


Mentech develops various products, both internally and for third parties. Mentech’s largest product is the Hume, an advanced platform that uses physiological sensors and AI to measure stress and emotions. This enables people with severe intellectual disabilities or late-stage dementia to express pain or discomfort and communicate with loved ones such as parents or caregivers. As a result, they are better understood, and more empathetic care can be provided. Additionally, we are constantly working on determining the next steps and expanding our product portfolio with new functionalities and/or products.
