Our Work 

NeuroSonica Pty Ltd is an Australian scientific sound company and emerging leader in therapeutic audio.

We produce SmartSound™, which incorporates a unique combination of evidence-based, neuro-acoustic sound technologies. Clinical studies suggest these may provide assistance in the treatment of various common conditions as well as the promotion of daily wellbeing, resilience and performance.

About Us

Our Mission

Building on our liaison with academics and health professionals, use by international  airlines and our ARTG inclusion as a Medical Technology, we aim to increase mainstream awareness of the science, applications and therapeutic benefits of our neuro-acoustic technologies. 

In particular we aim to:

 

PRODUCE and distribute high quality, evidence-based therapeutic sound products incorporating the latest clinical research

 

EDUCATE about the need for effective stress and sleep management, without which societies world-wide lose billions annually in lost productivity, health care costs and individual suffering

 

EXPLORE the many potential health, social and economic benefits of using SmartSound in public, private and government sectors including health, education, OHS and corporate wellness programs

 

OFFER free, functional audio samples on our apps for demonstration purposes- and those in need who do not have the funds for purchase

About Us

Our Story

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

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

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

Surprised at the breadth of multi-disciplinary material he uncovered- and the potential for synthesis, he set out to develop a hybrid ‘brain audio’ genre 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, Ken partnered with Dr Max Hicks and together they continued to conduct multi-disciplinary research into the therapeutic applications of sound, and the development of proprietary innovations along the way.

Eventually, after much trial and error SmartSound™ was 'born' - with its immersive signature sound, high-end production and wide ranging, evidence-based benefits.

With its 2016 inclusion into the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods, SmartSound™ has become a world first, government regulated medical grade audio. We are proud to present SmartSound™ as an effective, innovative breakthrough in therapeutic sound technology.

Ken continues to work 'behind the scenes' at NeuroSonica, collaborating with researchers and other sound professionals and ensuring SmartSound™ remains updated with the latest neuro-acoustic research and developments.
