As an assistive technology, ChillFish helps
children with ADHD in breathing exercises
Breathing exercises have shown to have multiple benefits for children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
However, these children can have issues retaining attention in such an exercise.
ChillFish attempts to disguise a general breathing exercise as a computer game, where the game avatar is controlled by the child using respiration.
By combining medical knowledge on respiration and relaxation with game design principles, ChillFish is a tool that can assist children towards the benefits of a calm, deep breath
ChillFish is the first ever respiration assisting tool designed for children and built entirely in LEGO!
