Playlab London creates games which produce measurable positive social change.
Flowy is a mobile game designed to combat panic attacks; it can alleviate the symptoms of a panic attack in six minutes of play. Using their breath as a control-method, the player solves puzzles built to induce relaxation through Breathing Retraining Exercises.
Flowy is currently in development with a view to launch in Q4 this year. We are running a clinical evaluation and preliminary efficacy trials in partnership with the NHS beginning Spring 2014. More information can be viewed at flowygame.com
Flowy is being supported by the Centre for Anxiety Disorders and Trauma at King’s College London and the NHS Improving Access to Psychological Therapies teams in Camden and Southwark, and is going through a formal ethics process with the NHS Merseycare Trust.
