'Psychological care for children to facilitate medical examinations at hospitals'
For children, hospitals are uncomfortable and unfamiliar places. At the same time, these are important facilities for diagnosing and treating illness. Examinations and operations are a cause of anxiety and fear in the little patients, and these feelings can be relieved by informing them of what to expect during their visit. ‘Novel Hospital Toys’ is a toy set consisting of toy models of machines, such as CT, X-ray, ECHO(echocardiograph), ECG (electrocardiograph), as well as picture books of explaining machines. Every toy is made so as to give light or sounds so that children can easily imagine how these ‘strange’ machines work while they are playing with them in the waiting room. Their understanding will greatly help the hospital staff in performing medical examinations smoothly in children.
