Health Points : Health Gamification

Episode 13: Dr. Paul Rinne & Nicola Goldsmith <> Levelling Up Hand Rehab

January 19, 2022

We’re back for another year of health gamification!

We’re joined by Paul and Nicola at Gripable to explore what happens when you combine gamification with a medical rehabilitation device. The Gripable handheld device enables both assessment and training of hand and arm functions, and this tactile feedback loop has resulted in smorgasbord of gamification.

In this episode we explore the steps in gamification design, game personalisation, using games to build trust and rapport between clinician and patient and the potential for games as clinical outcome measures.
