ITEA Panacea Gaming Platform spin-off Kids Digital Health™ launched at virtual event

The Uncomplicated Family Group celebrated the launch of Kids Digital Health

On 2 April 2020, The Uncomplicated Family™ hosted their first-ever global, virtual launch event celebrating the Kids Digital Health™ platform dedicated to providing parents and caregivers access to gamified apps and tools proven to have a positive impact on children’s health and wellbeing.

Introducing Kids Digital Health

Kids Digital Health is a commercial spin-off of the Kids DigiHealth Network for special populations that was a result of the ITEA Panacea Gaming Platform (PGP) project. Over two years of international cooperation and technology investment led by Canadian-based digital health company The Uncomplicated Family (TUF), resulted in the successful completion of the Panacea Gaming Platform. This was followed by the launch of the Serious Gaming platform by TUF Founder and CEO, Robyn Woods, with the goal of supporting special populations and those with disabilities around the world. The newly launched Kids Digital Health platform is a subscription-based content service for kids that provides parents with a trusted source for apps and games that engage their kids while helping improve their brains through neuroplasticity.
