BGaze Therapy are child-friendly serious games designed to improve attention skills. They were created especially for children with a-typical cognitive profiles, such as ADHD, ASD, and Dyslexia. Children diagnosed with such disorders often have below-average oculomotor control. BGaze Therapy are games that the player controls with the eyes. By focusing, following or avoiding to look at objects that appear on the screen, the player earns points and at the same time trains the attention network of the brain.
BGaze Therapy consists of several elements that must be put together to get the most out of it.
On the one hand, there is BGaze Therapy Player which is the software needed to play the games that uses an eye tracker as controller.
On the other hand, there is BGaze Therapy App, the software in charge of registering patients administering the games and collecting the data received from BGaze Therapy Player.
Normally, BGaze Therapy App is installed on the PC of the medical doctor and BGaze Therapy Player on another computer in a room where the patient can play the games without interruption.
Atypical eye movements and gaze fixation patterns are commonly observed in patient diagnosed with cognitive disorders such as ADHD, ASD or Dyslexia.
Neural structures controlling oculomotor behavior are part of the neural attention network of the brain.
Well-designed interactive eye-controlled video games can help to train the attention network and have been proven to improve cognitive-behavioral performance.
To get the benefits, a patient must play the game a couple of times per week for 5-15 minutes each time. After several months a difference will be noticed. It is recommended to continue the therapy for a prolonged period so that the effect will be anchored in the patient's cognitive abilities.
Currently, BGaze Therapy is only available for professional clinics.
