Children's health experiences are extended to the understanding of the little patients themselves with the Health Voyager application by Klick Health. The Toronto-based company partnered with Boston Children's Hospital to develop a VR experience that will help children, undergoing medical procedures such as colonoscopies, better understand the immediacy of their condition and situation.
Health Voyager uses the patient's clinical data and produces a virtual model of their insides. With the help of standard 3D goggles, kids can get a guided tour of their own anatomy.
The VR health experiences, provided by Klick Health's application, allow children to have some agency during diagnosis and procedures. Thus, Health Voyager fosters a certain respect for the little patient and eases the occasional emotional hardship, experienced by parents who are tasked with explaining a medical condition or procedure.
