We know how kids feel. A visit to the hospital can be overwhelming.
Undergoing an examination without Mom or Dad nearby is scary. Given an opportunity
to understand what’s happening, they find the experience easier. Their naturally
inquisitive minds are reassured when they can “try it out” with the KittenScanner.
Children are encouraged to explore the scanning concept by learning from a small
scale version of a scanner. This generic looking model scanner can be used to help
describe both the MRI and CT process.
First the child chooses a toy to scan.
Then he puts it on the miniature patient table and pushes it through the opening.
This action triggers a flat panel display which presents (in terms kids can understand)
a short story explaining how a scanner works and why the exam is needed.
The “insides” of the toy are seen on the screen, clarifying the scanner’s purpose.
As children play with the KittenScanner, attention is focused on learning and having
fun, so they are less likely to worry about the upcoming procedure.
By reducing fear, your pediatric patients can more calmly undergo the exam. Calmer patients also tend to be more compliant, less active. This may translate into fewer retakes and improved throughput. The KittenScanner is a useful addition to your Ambient Experience environment. It makes a serious occasion less scary for your youngest patients
