Bridging Content and Technology
Shaftesbury’s technical design principles and goals are human-centred by building products around the intuitive human interaction. These design principles are based around two core beliefs: Respect people and do good. With dedication and expert research, Shaftesbury has developed a clinically tested, unique game engine that is currently being tested in both the health and education sectors.
