Today, February 28, 2020, Platypus leaves behind an old name and rebrands as Optios. James Nail, the Chief Marketing Officer of Platypus Neuro, says the decision to change from Platypus to Optios is part of the company’s evolution as it continues to streamline its focus and differentiate itself from other neuroperformance companies.
Optios’ goal for the 2020s and beyond is to provide humanity with consistent access to brain states that facilitate peak performance and to make brain optimization tools available to people around the globe.
Optios is laser-focused on its mission to optimize performance through neurotechnology, elevate the human experience, and transform people’s lives. The company is headquartered in the U.S., but is a global brand with international clients and research affiliations.
The name Optios brings together etymological elements that create a new word. From Latin: Optare means “to choose.” The Greek prefix Opti– means “the best” and –ios means “us.” Optios also reflects our mission to create the OS (operating system) for optimized human performance.
Optios’ state-of-the-art neurotechnology platform allows people to measure and optimize their brain’s performance while doing a variety of tasks.
The neurotechnology that Optios is developing will ultimately be incorporated into numerous commercial products with the long-term intent to profoundly transform and elevate the human experience.
