Medi-Buddy / Medical AR Service

Medi-Buddy
Medi-Buddy

‘Medi-Buddy’ is a medical AR friend application to help children visit hospitals joyfully. We tried to solve the child’s fear and rejection to the hospital. This makes it difficult for children and their parents to visit hospitals, causing them miss timely treatment.

At the hospital, children can meet AR Buddy related to their treatment. For example, vaccinated child can understand their medical care by learning immunity and playing the virus-destroying game with Antibody Buddy. Also, it tells the child the medical schedule.

With 'Medi-Buddy', children can recognize the hospital as a joyful place and visit it voluntarily more often.
