Virtual assistant NOA

What is NOA?


The acronym NOA stands for "Narrative Osteoarthrosis Approach". Noa is also the name of the virtual assistant that interacts with users through speech (voice and subtitles) plus facial expressions.

NOA plays the role of a character who suffers from Osteoarthritis (OA) and provides information about her own experiences with the disease.

At the end of each dialogue, a quiz tests the users’ knowledge and awards points and digital badges for correct answers.

This application promotes education on OA and will be placed in the “Portuguese League Against Rheumatic Diseases” website to convey easy access.

How to play?


In this game you have the opportunity to talk to NOA, our virtual assistant who suffers from Osteoarthritis (OA).

Noa talks to you about her experiences and knowledge of the disease and answers some of your questions.

At the end of each conversation, play a quiz game to test your new knowledge! In this game, a question or incomplete phrase, and four options appear. Click on the correct option to earn points and go to the next level!

You can see your game progress through the emblems of each level. If you pass the four levels with the highest score, you will win a certificate of completion from the Portuguese League Against Rheumatic Diseases (LPCDR)!

Talk to NOA and have fun learning!
