Clinical assessment

At present X-TORP is under clinical assessment among three target population at Nice Sophia Antipolis teaching hospital.

This target population is made up of sedentary elderly people, patient suffering from MCI and the Alzheimer’s patient at the early stage to total 18 patients.

The main objective of this protocol is to show the use of these Serious Games for these populations. Similarly, we have to prove that these targeted populations are able to succeed in the cognitive stages and in the aerobic activity stages for a moderate to intense intensity: three times 1 hour per week.

The training protocol is planned over 2 months, test sessions included (9 weeks to the maximum).

A therapeutic game in the middle of innovation

In this adventure game coming right from the comic strips world, the patient/player takes the controls of a boat and sails throughout seas and oceans. Gesture and vocal controls enable him to move within the game and to fulfil his missions to become the wealthiest smuggler. Thanks to the game, he trains in a playful and adapted way at home surrounded by loved ones.
