Technology Based Obesity Prevention Project (TeBOPP)

Project: Research project

Description

The scope of work for the project is to develop a tablet based mobile interactive game that educates the player the importance of healthy diet and exercise. The game is comprised of three levels with increasing level of expertise and knowledge dissemination. There are opportunities to improve the score at each level and upon reaching a set score the levels are unlocked for the player. A unique badging system that rewards the player for participation and discovery of hidden goals has been implemented and the badges are earned by a check-in mechanism involving the players parent. The team at ASU is responsible for developing the game and testing the functionality of all the levels and make it ready for trials at the Maricopa childrens hospital emergency center.
