Abstract

Asthma is one of respiratory diseases, categorized as one of the four most chronic diseases in Malaysia. This disease covers about 3.25 millions of Malaysian population and the biggest group that have this disease is children below 12 years old. Hence, to educate and manage the increasing cases of asthma, Bronchi Talisman, a game-based mobile application, is specially created for children. With the objective of building a game-based mobile application and investigating the effect of using the mobile game application to the asthma patients, Bronchi Talisman is expected to solve the problems that have been found about asthma prevention and treatment. The first problem that has been identified is the lack of knowledge of the parents about asthma. Secondly, lack of attractive material that is available related to asthma education. Lastly, the existing game-based mobile applications do not educate the children about medicine. Instead, they are just providing entertainment solely. The scope of the project is the asthmatic children from the age of 5 to 11 years old and it should be able to run on any Android devices. The language used for this application will be English and Malay. The project is using Agile Development methodology which is extensively used in mobile development. This methodology provides flexibility to developer to do any changes at any stages of the application development. In conclusion, the high number of asthma cases shows that the awareness about asthma prevention and treatment is still low. Thus, it is beneficial to develop such game-based mobile application to educate the asthmatic kids and the parents on asthma and ways to manage this disease.
