Brain controlled app developed for kids with ADHD
October 3, 2017
A new app called NeuroPlus, modeled on a computer game, has been developed for children with a type of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The app is like a game.
NeuroPlus takes the form of a racing game and is controlled by children using their brains. The children who have used this have shown remarkable improvement.
NeuroPlus works on the basis of signals from a wireless headset that is used by a child to control how fast a character moves. The greater the child's concentration, the faster the character moves and the more difficult the game becomes.
The intention of the game is to encourage children, diagnosed with ADHD, to strengthen their focus and concentration while playing the game.
Signs of ADHD are problems in paying attention, excessive activity, or difficulty controlling behavior which is not appropriate for a person's age. People with ADHD may also have sleep and anxiety disorders.
