MAGE (aka MEGA MEDS)
Code-named ‘MAGE’ (that’s Medicines Adherence Gamification Experience to all you acronym lovers out there!), this is our medicines tracking game/app for mobile and tablet devices.
The app engages users with their medicines schedule. It creates a safe environment for documenting how they interact with their medicines and aggregates this with mood snapshots and Fitbit data regarding activity, sleep and heart rate. This data is sent in real-time to our web platform, where it is processed and visualised. This can then be reviewed by the patient’s clinician at their regular appointments.
The game experience engages users and enables them to log information about their medicines including non-adherence and reasoning. It gently nudges users to adhere to their prescribed medicines schedule through game experiences, rewards and competing with their peer-group.
MAGE Clincal Trial
MAGE is currently undergoing a randomized control trial (RCT) with an NHS Health Trust in Northern Ireland (United Kingdom).
BitRun uses your Fitbit® activity data to create a personalized ‘running’ game. Each day, the level you play is unique and personal to you, based on your previous day’s activity. You can also play without an activity tracker.
The more active you are, the more collectables you will find and the less obstacles you will have to dodge. Being active in real life means more interactive gameplay and high scores, more importantly, a place on the BitRun leaderboard.
OutPeek simplifies the process of mobile health app validation. It significantly reduces the time and money required to test the efficacy and adoption of an intervention.
Born through AppAttic’s own experience of trailing a mHealth intervention through randomised control trial (RCT), the OutPeek solution fits easily into any iOS, Android and web-based application. It is easy to configure with minimal developer input required and collects data to validate whether the intervention is effective and adopted by the end users. This data is collected, anonymised, stored securely and then visualised for review.
OutPeek is an all-in-one, end-to-end solution for low-risk mHealth validation. It has gained support from Innovate UK and is currently in private beta.
AppAttic have significant experience creating innovative tech solutions for complex problem domains, especially within connected health.
We create mobile health interventions that collect clinical data and aim to evoke prolonged behaviour change. Most recently, we have been developing a mobile app-game for ADHD medicines optimisation and a virtual reality game for stroke rehabilitation.
