Lee Gerdes is Founder and CEO of Brain State Technologies®. He is the creator of Brainwave Optimization® and new wearable headband technology, BRAINtellect® 2. In 2000 Lee began working with his own brain to relieve mTBI and PTSD, and that effort evolved into the neuro-technology called Brainwave Optimization, produced and distributed by Brain State Technologies®, with over 140 affiliate offices in 15 countries throughout the world serving over120,000 clients. Lee is the author of Limitless You: The Infinite Possibilities of a Balanced Brain, released in 2009 by Namaste Publishing. His work emanates from a combination of his interests in how the brain works and how it affects mind, body and spirit – and his own personal trauma, an assault that occurred in 1992. Lee’s work is daily proof that, in fact, by optimizing our brain, we can optimize our entire life and that “we can at last be the limitless individuals we were born to be.” Currently the wearable Braintellect 2 (B-2) began delivery in February, 2016 following prototype creation from a 2014 grant from the U.S. Army Research Office.
