Business Case for EEG Neurofeedback for Trauma

Return on Investment

This analysis is based on several existing sources, together with some working assumptions*.

Basis of Estimate:

8.3% of population experiencing 4+ ACEs43 

£287 late intervention cost average per person in UK per annum44 

£3,458 late intervention cost per person per annum suffering 4+ ACEs (£287/8.3%)

80 average lifespan UK
-15 average lifespan reduction assumed for 4+ ACE sufferers*
65 lifespan assumed for 4+ ACE sufferers
14 age at which 4+ ACEs suffered*
51 number of life years with 4+ ACE sufferers
£176,000 lifetime cost of late intervention of 4+ ACE sufferers (51 x £3,458)
£112,000 Net Present Value of cost of late intervention (Discount Factor 2% pa)

Cost of Advanced QEEG Brain Mapping and 40 sessions of neurofeedback therapy: £4,000
Success rate 80%*

Cost per successful intervention: £5,000.

Return on Investment: £112,000/£5,000 = 22x, or 21,000% RoI.

This analysis is simple, but is believed to be conservative.

We have separately quantified the cost of 4+ ACEs at £71bn per annum, and the number of the population suffering 4+ ACEs at 5.4m, equating to a cost of £13,000 per person per annum. This suggests the RoI above may be understated by > 3 times.
