Design Interactive’s (DI) ADAPT-MP has been named a finalist at the I/ITSEC Serious Games Showcase & Challenge (SGS&C) this year. ADAPT-MP has been selected amongst the group of well qualified submissions for the Best Game in the Business Category, and the newly announced Innovation Award.
The Auto-Diagnostic Adaptive Precision Trainer for Myoelectric Prosthetic users or ADAPT-MP promises to improve upper limb amputee patient outcomes and prepare them for life after the prosthetic fitting. Nearly two million people are living with limb loss in the United States. This number is projected to double by the year 2050. Myoelectric prostheses provide movement control using electromyography (EMG) electrodes on the residual muscles to control arm and hand movements. But these devices require intensive training to effectively operate and difficult training has been a primary reason for low user acceptance. Enter the ADAPT-MP mini-games.
The SGS&C celebrates the use of games and gaming technology as a delivery medium for instructional material. The Challenge fosters creativity and innovation in Serious Games. A Serious Game is defined as having: measurable learning objectives, provide players with a challenge or problem, make use of gaming technology, and provide players with feedback and achievement of learning objectives.
After a rigorous evaluation, the top entries from all received are selected as finalists and invited to Showcase their Games on the exhibit floor during I/ITSEC. Evaluations from worldwide industry experts determines the "Best in Category" for each of the categories. There will also be an additional award selected by all I/ITSEC attendees called the "People's Choice Award." Come check out DI’s mobile adaptive game, ADAPT-MP, at booth 1721 and see for yourself if we’ve got your vote!
