Inspired by: We. Can’t. Focus. Between a surge of COVID-induced brain fog and the fact that attention spans have decreased from 12 seconds to 8 seconds in the past decade, our mental concentration is suffering acutely. ADHD runs rampant, and now affects over 16 million children and adults in the US. Until now, the only way to address attention deficit issues was through medication such as Ritalin or Adderall or therapy. Now there is a better way: Narbis.
Leveraging the Narbis team’s previous success with an official NASA spin-off company developing products to help people practice staying focused, Narbis was founded in 2013 to continue developing ways to encourage people to practice their attention performance. Narbis has developed a convenient, at-home, easy-to-use training device designed to help individuals work on focus and concentration habits in daily activities.
The parent company, Domenic Greco Ventures, Corp., was named after Narbis founder Devon Greco’s father, Dr. Domenic Greco, a leading clinical psychologist. Sadly, Dr. Greco was diagnosed with ALS in 2009.
Alongside his youngest son, Devon, he continued to work throughout his illness on innovation in the area of easy to use neurofeedback systems for individuals. Narbis was conceived by Devon before Dr. Greco’s premature death in 2013. He continues to be an inspiration to the work and innovation behind Narbis.
