VR Experiences Help Children Understand Medical Procedures
A VR tool takes child patients on a tour inside their own bodies to help ease their fear and increase their understanding of medical treatments
Even adult patients often struggle to understand the medical procedures they have to undergo, and it can be a frightening experience. For kids, this problem is amplified. Klick Health developed a VR tool that allows children to learn about healthcare and the body. The company partnered with Boston Children's Hospital to create a VR experience that helps children understand different medical procedures, such as colonoscopies and endoscopies. Called HealthVoyager, it utilizes the patient's actual data to create a virtual model of how their body looks inside. Using a VR viewer, children can explore their insides with some guidance.
