Every fourth kid in the world is battling with chronic disease, such as cancer, diabetes or asthma. Of them, 60% have psychological issues, which are often preventable but don’t get enough attention before serious problems have already developed. This complicates treatment. There is a serious need for innovation in healthcare as current system is not sustainable. We want to improve the accessibility of psychological support and shift the focus to prevention.
We make it possible to create a healthier future for children
We make psychological support engaging for children. Using our solution, children play a fun game, find out more about their illness, get psychological support from a virtual friend and get rewarded from changing their habits.
Our solution enables improvement in treatment monitoring and enhances communication between patients, their families and medical personnel in a cost-efficient way. We have established contacts with many doctors, psychologists and patients, who contributed to the idea.
We are collaborating with Estonian Association of Parents with Children with Cancer, Estonian Connected Health Cluster & ICory consortium. To access these opportunities we ask annual license fees from our customers. Our initital target market is hospitals in Estonia and Finland.
Psychological wellbeing is the key of area of our solution as there is no health without mental health. We have research-based profiling and machine learning for personalized path.
Treatment compliance for children
The adventurous content of our application provides external motivators for a change in behavior and attitudes as it is difficult to have inner motivation when going through very damaging, painful and long-term treatment. Treatment will have another purpose.
Behavioral change can only happen in the presence of knowledge. Our application has extensive educational component. Children will answer to questionnaires and receive formative feedback how to become better is specific areas.
Unhealthy lifestyle factors predispose to a number of health problems. We help children to achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Our target areas are nutrition, physical activity, sleep and personal hygiene.
It is known that empowerment increases autonomy and self-determination which in turn leads to better health outcomes. Our application has a social network for asking help and helping others out. This will decrease their social isolation.
Sense of success
Achieved through character development, minigames and interaction with others. Feedback from peers is more important than from adults for children.
