Almost all kidney patients follow a strict and complex diet. Patients need to limit nutrients such as potassium and phosphorus even if they have never even heard of them. Phosphorus is also rarely listed on food labels.
People with kidney disease need to acquire lots of new nutritional knowledge. And yet, in oral and written information transfer, patients on average only remember about 10 percent of the information.
FosFaatSpel teaches patients about phosphorus using a game app. Nutritional information is conveyed in a fun, easy-to-understand manner with ample images to reinforce learning. Current clients have seen reduced phosphorus levels and increased patient knowledge.
The app also provides feedback on learning areas where a patient struggled. Healthcare providers can then focus on patient problem areas during appointments providing personalized feedback and better patient support.
After a successful pilot, the first general release of the Dutch FosFaatSpel is available! The release includes game updates and expanded reporting capabilities. To stay informed about the game, sign up for our FosFaatSpel newsletter.
