VIANOVA

Optimizing Health by Serious Gaming
ViaNova© is a serious game that helps people (with or without a somatic condition) to optimise their health. It is complementary to an online supported training and is based on evidence-based cognitive behavioural methods.

At the beginning of the game participants can choose a coach, who will lead them through the game and provides them with information. People can also create an avatar (an ideal self) with which they can play ViaNova©. The game consists of four spaces that have their own health related theme. Participants can play games related to these themes. Currently, we are evaluating ViaNova©. 

ViaNova© is developed by Leiden University, Health Medical and Neuropsychology Unit in collaboration with Delft University of Technology (IT specialists: C. Eckhardt, R.A.D. de Hoog, S.Y. van den Oever, S. de Wit, B.G. Lalleman, J.M. Raes and O. Ulusoy. Graphic designers: P. van Dijk, J. de Hoog, and W. Treurniet. Serious game advisor: R. Bidarra).
