Online Games Help Diabetic Patients Make Healthier Decisions

Technologies like interactive games and virtual reality platforms can help people with type 2 diabetes make better choices and monitor their health on a regular basis. The authors found that when people engage in interactive social platforms that are capable of building and hosting online therapeutic communities, they develop empathy for the people who are living day-to-day with a chronic disease. As the online therapeutic communities are developed, the players become peers who mentor one another in making better choices about their health.
