If you've been following us on Twitter or LinkedIn over the last three years then you'll have heard lots of talk of 'Xploro®'.
Six year's ago our MD's daughter, Issy, was diagnosed with Cancer. Now, aged 20, she’s cancer-free, but when she was ill nobody told her what to expect and that made her feel scared, anxious and alone. So for the last three years we've been building Xploro®, a mobile application that uses augmented reality, gameplay and artificial intelligence to deliver health information to patients, in a way which makes them feel empowered, engaged and informed, whilst having fun at the same time.
We've funded the app's development with grants from Innovate UK, Nominet Trust and the NHS and we're planning to launch the app next year, following a six month trial at Royal Manchester Children's Hospital. We'll be writing much more about Xploro® over the coming months but in the meantime keep up to date with all the news and developments by following the Xploro® Twitter account.
You can read more about Xploro on our new website dedicated to the project.
