The first video game therapy to treat children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) was given a nod. Prescription-only EndeavorRx is indicated for children aged 8 to 12 years who have an attention issue.
The mobile device app is intended for use with other therapies including medications and behavioral therapy. It underwent the FDA’s de novo review process for low-risk devices, opening the door for other products that show substantial equivalence.
