Digital exercises for children to reduce stress and anxiety
The new Danish Children’s hospital BørneRiget reached out to us to find a new solution. Together with BørneRiget, Rigshospitalet we co-design the solution My Companion with the purpose of both educating, supporting and comforting children during unpleasant procedures in the hospital.
For many children, the experience of going through necessary medical procedures in hospitals can be both frightening and very uncomfortable, especially for those who visits the hospitals on a regular basis throughout their whole lives. Often it can feel like a big challenge to perform necessary procedures such as blood tests in the hospital, if they have had an unpleasant experience before.
Children who go through painful procedures at the hospital are more prone to increased stress-levels.
