Our method

Developed with experts in the field of
behavior change and serious games.

References and excerpt from the frameworks used

Based on the latest scientific research, the system was developed with behavior change and serious game experts. Our method combines evidence-based behavior change interventions with serious games. A high level of effectiveness is achieved by adapting the interventions used to the personal motivation profile.
