Today, screens are pervasive in our daily lives. 11% of teenagers aged 11-14 and 23% of 15-17 years old spend more than 7 hours a day on it. One of the obstacles mentioned in the fight against digital addiction is the risk of relapse into everyday life.


The Phonix Health digital medical device aims to help young people become aware of their use of screens and learn to regulate their use by being increasingly autonomous and responsible in their use.


The medical device offers rules for organizing the use of screens on a daily basis and also offers to carry out non-digital activities that can be entertaining on a daily basis.

State of progress

The device is tested with middle school, high school and university students. This study is carried out in collaboration with clinicians and the rectorate of Grenoble (TRL 7). The effectiveness of the device will be the subject of a clinical study from September 2022 in the department of Isere.


The device makes it possible:

  • to assist in the objective and passive diagnosis of the use of screens,
  • the implementation of a therapy that consists of unblocking recreational activities on the screens if non-digital recreational activities are carried out,
  • tracking screen usage.
