"Timocco's in-house team of occupational therapists or a child's therapist can conveniently activate the Progress Tool for a player via the platform's user-friendly interface."

Timocco, therapeutic gaming software developer for children with Autism, Cerebral Palsy and developmental delays, releases progress tracking tool to chart players' improvements across a range of motor and cognitive skills.

Special Needs VR startup Timocco has launched a new feature on its pioneering motion-based gaming platform that allows therapists and parents to easily track skill development.

Timocco is a supplemental therapeutic activity for children with Cerebral Palsy, ADHD, Developmental Coordination Disorder, Autism, Learning Disabilities and other developmental delays. The 50+ games on Timocco's platform are designed by child development experts to motivate children to improve motor, cognitive and communication skills.

The latest innovation on Timocco's interactive gaming platform, the Progress Tool monitors how developmental skills are impacted over time as children play.

Timocco's Progress Tool tracks performance across four key skills: Bilateral coordination, midline crossing, hand-eye coordination and attention.

Therapists can use the Progress Tool to track a user's performance and to show parents developmental progress or to emphasize areas or skills that require extra focus.

"The Progress Tool is really the best way to see the efficacy of playing Timocco," said Timocco CEO Eran Arden. "It provides a convenient and accessible method for therapists and parents to monitor a child's abilities, evaluate their progress, and to plan future therapy accordingly."

The Progress Tool tracks a player's performance over time, monitoring progress across four key skills: bilateral coordination, midline crossing, hand-eye coordination and attention.

Timocco's in-house team of occupational therapists or a child's therapist can conveniently activate the Progress Tool for a player via the platform's user-friendly interface.

The system uses four games, each designed to operate as an assessment tool for one of the four key skills.

Players are requested to play that particular game following every ten minutes of accumulated game-play.

After an assessment, therapists can access data that includes charts illustrating motor efficiency, reaction speed, and play duration. Heat-map charts showing 'hot areas' reflect the child's movements and recorded hand-motion patterns can be played back to view a child's progress.

Timocco's 50+ fun games for kids with special needs are available online and can be played on a personal computer - only a webcam and two round colored objects are required to play.

A project to develop and research a cost-effective web-based therapeutic gaming platform for child physiotherapy is scheduled to commence later this year. The collaboration with Rhode Island Hospital is partly funded by a grant from the prestigious BIRD foundation.

Timocco was recently awarded a UK patent for its unique object tracking technology that enables a variable range of motion. That technology allows players with a limited range of hand movement, or those in wheelchairs, to configure Timocco's games to best suit their abilities.
