Kitten Scanner

Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

Kitten Scanner is a product that helps to teach children about what happens during a CAT (or CT) examination. Interactive role-play and storytelling are used to shed light on the different steps of a CT exam and to take the fear away from clinical procedure and technology. The Kitten Scanner is placed in the waiting room of the hospital and invites children to interact and play with it. Through the act of playing the child learns about what a CT exam is. How it works, what it does, why they would need the exam. The child becomes familiarized with the procedure and knows what to expect in a real exam. This takes the fear and anxiety away.
