A Digital Vaccine candidate for chronic diseases, Fooya!, has been developed by FriendsLearn, Inc.. The candidate has been evaluated via pilot clinical trials in a variety of clinical, consumer, and school-based usage settings. Fooya! is a medical mobile application that has adopted the design principles of a Digital Vaccine via a gamified learning platform that uses neuroscience, artificial intelligence, and virtual reality to improve dietary choices, physical activity, and health literacy amongst children. It has unique, immersive, and motivational features that encourage active-video game playing, and thereby, induce desired behavioral changes in the pediatric population.
