about

What is MHASC ?

MHASC© is the first m-Health app to assess hallucinations in the touch-screen generation. Developed and validated by a specialized team under the supervision of Pr. Jardri, this tool will soon be available.

MHASC, a child knows how to use it

Simple, smooth and gaming, the interface promotes the child’s autonomy. A custom avatar moves into interactive sceneries with the help of Lulu, confidant of the adventure.

MHASC, an innovation for health professionals

The professionals can immediately access the assessment results and follow the evolution of hallucinations over time while measuring the effectiveness of her/his treatment.

MHASC, an all-in-one assessment tool

Vision, hearing, touch, smell, taste… MHASC explores all the sensory modalities of hallucinations with dedicated environments, while complementary modules assess cognitive functions.

MHASC will be freely available

The LITE and PRO versions of the MHASC app can be downloaded for free after brief registration. An advanced analysis module will be available with subscription (PRO+ version).

Hallucination : a frequent but underrated experience

Hallucinations are frequent experiences in youth but their presence is not synonymous with schizophrenia. Such experiences can be observed in a large range of disorders (e.g. psychiatric, neurological, metabolic, genetic, etc.), but also be fully benign.

As for the non-detection of a persistent disorder, inadequate care of early-onset hallucinations may have deleterious consequences in terms of cognitive and social functioning.

The challenge is to better detect and explore early-onset hallucinations.

The MHASC app

MHASC is a all-in-one tablet app, developed for children and professionals.
MHASC integrates two complementary environments.

A professional dashboard
This interface contains all the necessary tools to plan sessions, or manage and analyze data in a professional way: Patient diary for longitudinal follow-up/ Appointment-making system/ Data analysis and visualization/ Secure archiving solutions, and much more…

From this interface, the professional can launch a « user » session, in which the child’s experience will be assessed. Through real-time analysis of the collected data, MHASC provides valuable information to clinicians and scientists.

A child interface

The child interface opts for a different look. Several designs are linked, each one representing a world in relation to the sensory modality explored. Reference to these video-game codes intuitively immerses the child at the heart of the MHASC app.

The child’s autonomy is encouraged via the multimedia support. Lulu, the mascot of the app, guides the child throughout the evaluation. In addition, interactions with a personalized avatar enable optimal child’s immersion in the environment.
