Ubisoft's therapeutic video game Dig Rush treats 'lazy eye'

Ubisoft's therapeutic video game Dig Rush treats 'lazy eye' | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it

Ubisoft, the maker of games like Assassin’s Creed, and healthtech startup Amblyotech have teamed up to create Dig Rush, a therapeutic video game that can help treat a condition known as “lazy eye.” With “lazy eye,” patients see out of one eye instead of two.

The title from the French game publisher is part of a trend of “games for health,” or those that can be used to treat health problems, and it is being unveiled today at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. Its creators say that the treatment is 90 percent effective, and it takes only four to six weeks to retrain your brain to use both eyes instead of one eye, based on clinical testing.

Un partenariat entre Ubisoft, l'université McGill de Montréal et la société Amblyotech a permis la mise au point d'un traitement original de l'amblyopie

Richard Platt's curator insight, March 5, 2015 10:13 PM

Amblyopia, or “lazy eye,” is where one eye dominates a person’s vision to the point where they don’t have much depth perception and see life effectively through a single eye. The condition affects 3 percent of the population, or about 9 million people in the U.S.

Que una compañía de videojuegos de las grandes empiece a interesarse por aplicar la gamificación a la salud, es un paso importante

UpTempo Group's curator insight, March 13, 2015 1:43 PM

Very interesting new startup creates an action video game that may treat Lazy Eye or Amblyopia. One of the first examples of a video game producer working with the FDA.
