The problem

Changing a person's behavior is difficult, and many attempts end in failure, even when we have a strong understanding of the science behind it. The problem is that proven methods are both complicated and time-consuming.

We are generally impatient when it comes to behavior change and try to change too many things at once. We need extra help to keep us focused and on track.

We have different likes and interests, and are likewise motivated differently. A successful behavior change plan needs to be more personalized.
It's not enough to simply track our habits. We need support from others, and everybody involved needs access to good and accurate information.

Our solution

We developed Beanfee, a digital platform, to help with behavioral training for children and young adults. Our solution is based on behavior analysis, reward systems as seen in many video games, and extensive trials in real-world situations.

With Beanfee, not only do we focus on the subject but also involve the family and sometimes teachers and therapists. Beanfee makes sure everybody is on the same track towards a clear goal.

A successful behavioral training intervention early on can make a huge difference in a young person's life, and that drives us onwards in our mission.
