Brainstorm session and six iterations for a vaping prevention game prototype for a large research study at Yale, sponsored by Oculus VR.

Pain Buddy prototype

Pain Buddy

Client: UC Irvine

Date: Nov 2016 - Aug 2019

Duration: 148 man-days

In Pain Buddy, children with chronic pain are incentivized to complete a standardized assessment to allow following up on their pain levels and making timely adjustments in their care. We achieved this by making the assessments playful, and rewarding the kids with points which they can use to customize their avatar as well as to play various minigames we designed. Work included six iterations as well as support work in the years afterwards as our client used the prototype to study a large amount of kids in a hospital setting.
