Gamification: The Future of ADHD Treatment | Vincent Hennemand, Akili Interactive


The team at Akili Interactive has developed the very first doctor-prescribed video game to treat cognitive dysfunctions like ADHD. With game developers from Lucasarts on their roster (that’s right…Star Wars) it’s no wonder they’re seeing north of 85% rates of compliance! Are video games really the future of treatments for cognitive dysfunctions? Akili Interactive is betting on it with plans to add treatments for depression, multiple sclerosis, and schizophrenia on the horizon.
