ScanKids includes the most common image-based diagnostic tests for children at hospitals: X-ray, CT, MRI and ultrasound. Children personalize the app, selecting the test they are having and the part of their body to be analysed. From this point on a character takes them through all the steps to be followed. At the end of the explanation of the tests, there are two anatomy-based games to entertain the young patients and enable them to learn.
The atmosphere created in the waiting room and the CT scan room was considered crucial, so an outer-space theme, based on the same characters used in ScanKids, was chosen to distract kids away from the typical white walls and lights of a hospital environment. Illustrations transport them to another galaxy, where they become astronauts with the characters from the app, exploring and learning about their body. The CT scanner itself becomes a spaceship, which combined with the smart lighting in the room, transforms the child’s experience into a magical and spectacular adventure.
Patients control the smart lighting, changing the colors to suit their preferences and make them feel relaxed. Moreover, luminous textiles have been installed in the waiting room incorporating a surprising and innovative decorative element, as well as warmer and pleasant LED lighting in the access areas.
