About Us

Our Story

Back in 2001, NeuroSonica’s founder Ken Grimmer wanted to explore the potentials of scientific sound technologies to help optimise client outcomes in his counselling/therapeutic practice.

With a longstanding interest in therapeutic sound design, plus his own past experiences with depression, insomnia and panic anxiety, he was inspired by decades of clinical sound research and its evidence-based applications for health and wellbeing.

With this in mind, he began extensive research into a wide range of therapeutic, sound-based  disciplines, research and clinical studies.

Surprised at the amount of multidisciplinary material available - and its potential for synthesis, he set out to develop a hybrid ‘brain audio’ that would combine multiple, evidence-based sound technologies and processes into a single, synergistic format.

Thus began over 12 years of self-funded R&D...

During this time, which included hospital-based EEG 'brain mapping' with a senior neurophysiologist, he partnered with Dr Max Hicks, and together they continued research into the therapeutic applications of sound, and the development of proprietary innovations along the way.

Eventually, after much trial and error SmartSound™ was ready - with its immersive signature sound, high-end production and broad-spectrum, evidence-based benefits.

With its 2016 inclusion into the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods, SmartSound™ is now the world's first, government regulated medical audio of its kind. We are proud to present SmartSound™ as an effective, innovative breakthrough in therapeutic sound technology.
