Design for Child Patient Empowerment
‘Doctor, can I ask you a question?’
Patients are increasingly in charge of their own health. Except children. They depend on their parents for communicating with doctors. These ‘tangible blocks’ help build a conversation. An interactive mat keeps track of what has been said through a visual timeline that is comprehensible for children.
