Akili Interactive’s EndeavorRX game -- formerly known as Project EVO -- is the first FDA-approved prescription video game that was recently launched in the US. The interactive game is made for children ages 8 to 12 and is specifically designed to help those with ADHD symptoms.
Akili Interactive's EndeavorRX game was made after seven years of clinical trials, that involved studies of over 600 children. The final product is described as an "obstacle-dodging, target-collecting game" and has been proven to help retain ADHD patients' uninterrupted focus for up to 25 minutes daily.
The game is not only interactive and family-friendly but is also said to deliver minimal side effects when compared to traditional prescription drugs, speaking to the gaming industry's future potential in the world of virtual health.
