communication medium

ACM SIGGRAPH 2018 Posters


This work presents a virtual reality simulation for training different attentional abilities in children and adolescents. In an interdisciplinary project between psychology and computer science, we developed four mini-games that are used during therapy sessions to battle different aspects of attentional disorders. First experiments show that the immersive game-like application is well received by children. Our tool is also currently part of a treatment program in an ongoing clinical study.
