Launching of the Beta-testing phase in France and in the United
PARIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Tilak, a company from the iBionext network developing mobile medical
applications for the management of chronic diseases, announced that
Odysight, its first mobile medical game dedicated to the monitoring of
patients with chronic eye diseases, has achieved CE marking. CE marking
triggers the Beta testing phase of Odysight with ophthalmologists in
France, followed by the United Kingdom.
Odysight has innovative and distinctive features, unique in the world of
mobile therapeutic gaming:
It was designed in-house by doctors and realized by video game
- It is a puzzle game for smartphone and tablet;
It brings together all the elements of a modern mobile video game: an
innovative artistic direction, simple game mechanics, a level of
difficulty adapted to the patient
It monitors the evolution of visual parameters (near visual acuity,
contrast sensitivity, presence and evolution of scotomas or
metamorphosis) and triggers regular medical tests for the follow-up of
patients with chronic eye diseases.
Odysight is available on the App Store and Google Play, only via medical
prescription. The ophthalmologist can follow in real time or during the
consultation the evolution of the patient’s visual parameters via an
online dashboard. He is alerted if a change occurs.
« Obtaining the CE mark for Odysight is a key step in the company’s
development. The mobile video game, a real medical monitoring tool, has
become an integral part of the care pathway for patients, especially
those suffering from chronic diseases which are growing rapidly in
western countries » said Edouard Gasser, CEO of Tilak.
