A new device controls anomalies in cardiac rhythm in accordance with our breathing patterns.
Now, a startup from England is backing technology to help avoid errors in diagnosing depression. Their system analyses patients’ facial and vocal expressions while they play video games.
The games trigger psychological processes in patients, revealing cognitive patterns associated with depression.

A treatment plan is then agreed with a registered clinician. Playing games between sessions allows patients’ conditions to be monitored remotely.
