WellBeings will focus on using mobile games to address wellbeing issues, which include; anxiety, panic disorder, and chronic pain. WellBeings also plans to become an all-in-one destination for e-health and wellbeing applications, consultation, and research.

From a research standpoint, the data generated could revolutionise how professional practice responds to a range of conditions. From a user’s point of view, our games will offer innovative alternatives to a stagnating market”
