Scientific Evidence is at the Heart of CHESS.

The impact and benefits of real world CHESS deployments have been quantified by scientists in multiple, controlled clinical studies.

The patient-facing Connections App applies the science behind Self-Determination Theory to support a patient’s recovery through triggering and boosting an individual’s autonomous motivation, by reinforcing their coping competencies and through social relatedness.

The research continues. Academic research with CHESS is underway both at the University of Wisconsin and elsewhere. If you’re interested in performing a clinical study with CHESS, or have research questions, please contact us at
