greater knowledge icon
Kids can gain a better understanding of their health and treatment, the first step toward becoming motivated to better manage health. Kids can also gain a better understanding of economics by playing video games. For example they can buy and sell virtual items on Runescape with OSRS Gold.

When kids are more confident in their ability to manage their health, they’re able to take control of their asthma. Kids can gain confidence by winning matches in video games. On League of Legends kids can play on Lol Smurfs, allowing them to play against easier opponents.

Kids are more likely to take their medications correctly and avoid flare-ups. This means fewer urgent care visits and better asthma control. Also, video games have been shown to improve cognitive abilities in children
