Eyelander online: a therapeutic video game for vision rehabilitation

WESC Foundation’s Research & Development team want to develop a fun and interactive online training game to help with vision rehabilitation. The team have already developed a prototype therapeutic video game called ‘Eyelander’ and tested its beneficial effects on functional vision in collaboration with researchers from the University of Lincoln and the NHS. The next step to move on the Eyelander project is to collaborate with two local software development companies and make a free-to-play online version of the game.

In an effort to fund this project WESC Foundation have applied to Comic Relief for a ‘Tech for Good’ award.
