A mobile application (KUDL) delivered promising results for reducing feelings of isolation, weirdness, and the need for social engagement in clinical trials, researchers reported.
Created by Abid Nagusami, founder and CEO of KUDL, use of the KUDL app was associated with decreased social anxiety symptomatology and an increase in quality-of-life measures, according to Stacy Crane, PhD, MPH, of Harrison Institute of Iterative Therapy in Manhattan, and colleagues. Results of the Kinetic Understanding of Deterring Loneliness (KUDL) trial were published online in the Journal of Nature Technologies.
