Playing for Health : how videogames can help to treat diseases
1 February 2011
Euronews reports about Playmancer, an EU funded project that looks into how videogames can help to treat diseases as diverse as addiction to gambling, eating disorders and back and neck chronic pain. The videogame has already been developed, and is currently under clinical trials in Barcelona and Enschede (Netherlands) with real patients. Euronews filmed these clinical trials and talked to the patients, clinicians, developers and therapists involved.
