BioGaming, a video game consul that acts as a personal physical therapist, was awarded first prize at the eHealth Venture Summit & Innovation Award at MEDICA 2014 in Dusseldorf in November. ​​

 

 

BioGaming’s Founder & CEO, Dudi Klein, delivered a compelling presentation telling the story of an Israeli girl battling cancer who, until now, refused to participate in any kind of conventional physiotherapy rehabilitation. BioGaming’s YuGo computer games successfully changed her attitude towards physio by enabling her to do do her exercises in a fun and engaging environment.

 

Since physical exercise programs are notoriously boring, many patients quickly give up. This results in poor clinical outcomes and increased healthcare costs. BioGaming has combatted this by creating fun, interactive therapy sessions that mimic the look and feel of the hottest video games on the market. The game console’s Kinect 3D is able to monitor and analyze performance in real time, so patients can receive feedback from their therapists as they exercise. Therapists are able to connect to a custom dashboard that monitors patient-specific programs.
