First Meditation App to Beat Active Control
Today, Mobio Interactive published a peer-reviewed scientific paper that demonstrates the company's digital therapeutic outperforms active control. Compared to the control app (the "placebo") the digital therapeutic enhanced stress resilience and focus ability, while reducing overall stress. In addition, the digital therapeutic's in-app measures of wellbeing were found to significantly correlate with standardised psychological surveys, meaning the digital therapeutic can be used to provide highly scalable, medically relevant assessments of mental health. The study was conducted on 80 university students self-reporting symptoms of mild anxiety and who indicated they had limited experience with meditation. Significant effects compared to control were observed within three weeks, making this also one of the fastest acting interventions supporting stress resilience yet studied. The results were published today in the journal JMIR Mental Health, in collaboration with the Regulatory and Affective Dynamics Lab at the University of Toronto.
