Update on Applaudio!
The technical team used the money that was donated last year by our foundation to build the first version of the App Applaudio! They also purchased hardware to test the principle they used. Based on this experience and discussions with experts, the specification has been refined. The next step the team wanted to take was the project that was presented for the ‘Hersenbokaal’ 2016. Unfortunately Applaudio! finished in second place so did not win the sum of 40,000 Euros. The result of this second place is that recognition of the need for a product was obtained and by this doors open more easily, but this has so far not led to additional funding.
Wherever possible, action is taken to further develop the tool and expand the contact network. The team hopes to be able to start implementing soon, but the financial resources must be available first. For news, check the website of Applaudio!

We finished the survey on flooding, but you can still check the questions of the survey to see if what you experience belongs to overstimulation.

Project for development of a tool, named Applaudio!, nominated for the "Hersenbokaal"
Remember that we posted a fund-raising announcement here not too long ago? The project in which a team of experts is working on the development of a tool against overstimulation for sound now has been nominated (together with two other projects) for a trophy: the so-called “Hersenbokaal”. The Hersenbokaal comes with an amount of € 40,000 that will be donated by the Dutch Brain Foundation. Read all about it at https://www.hersenstichting.nl/hersenbokaal-2016/genomineerden-2016, unfortunately in Dutch only. For any questions, do not hesitate to contact us.
