Attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is of significant concern. Pharmacological treatments often leave residual symptoms and are associated with side effects. The FDA has recently approved use of a game-based digital device (EndeavorRx®; Figure) for the treatment of ADHD (primarily inattentive or combined-type) in youths aged 8-12 years. This approval by the FDA marks the first of its kind and paves the way for future digital treatments for ADHD as well as other mental health conditions.
