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.

Olivier Janin's insight:

Congrats ! 

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, 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

Five questions for Hitachi about its happiness measuring work wearable | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it

You're the CEO, the boss, the queen bee. And getting what you want out of your worker bees looks increasingly linked to how happy said worker bees are. You ask them how things are going. Send out surveys. But what you really want is stats, a 0-100 system of how happy the worker bees…

Fitbit Dominates The Wearables Market, But Can It Survive The Coming Onslaught Of Smart Watches?

Fitbit Dominates The Wearables Market, But Can It Survive The Coming Onslaught Of Smart Watches? | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it

Fitbit products already dominate the fitness-tracker market, accounting for 70 percent of sales; together with the Jawbone Up fitness tracker (19 percent) and Nike’s discontinued FuelBand, the three companies make up 97 percent of the fitness-tracker market. But that could soon change as huge ad spenders such as Samsung, Apple, LG, Motorola and Intel get into the market along with carrier partners such as AT&T and Verizon. The wearables market is heating up fast; the question is whether Fitbit can stay ahead of the pack.
