PARIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tilak, a company from the iBionext network developing mobile medical applications for the management of chronic diseases, announced that Odysight, its first mobile medical game dedicated to the monitoring of patients with chronic eye diseases, has achieved CE marking. CE marking triggers the Beta testing phase of Odysight with ophthalmologists in France, followed by the United Kingdom.
Odysight has innovative and distinctive features, unique in the world of mobile therapeutic gaming:
- It was designed in-house by doctors and realized by video game professionals;
- It is a puzzle game for smartphone and tablet;
- It brings together all the elements of a modern mobile video game: an innovative artistic direction, simple game mechanics, a level of difficulty adapted to the patient
- It monitors the evolution of visual parameters (near visual acuity, contrast sensitivity, presence and evolution of scotomas or metamorphosis) and triggers regular medical tests for the follow-up of patients with chronic eye diseases.
Odysight is available on the App Store and Google Play, only via medical prescription. The ophthalmologist can follow in real time or during the consultation the evolution of the patient’s visual parameters via an online dashboard. He is alerted if a change occurs.
« Obtaining the CE mark for Odysight is a key step in the company’s development. The mobile video game, a real medical monitoring tool, has become an integral part of the care pathway for patients, especially those suffering from chronic diseases which are growing rapidly in western countries » said Edouard Gasser, CEO of Tilak.
