Our Medical Gaming Carts support children and young people through the healing process as they undergo treatment and procedures in hospitals. We offer mobile gaming equipment to healthcare professionals with the means to make activities and technology accessible. Minimising the effects of isolation, stress, and anxiety on children and young patients helps promote recovery and wellbeing.
Interactive video games can be used within hospital wards to provide relief, offer a distraction, help children engage, and even support education. There is a vast range of purposes interactive gaming can serve throughout medical environments. Feedback to date has been very positive from both healthcare professionals and parents.

Joy and Contentment
We help those who are immobile, have limited access to activities or are in hospitals for lengthy periods while creating and maintaining experiences that produce joy and contentment,
Undergoing medical treatment can often be a scary and isolating experience, especially for children. There is a particular need for age-appropriate coping tools in both paediatric and adult hospitals.
Interactive gaming helps build creativity, promotes interaction with others, while offering some sense of normality and belonging to both patients and families spending time on hospital wards.

I know that our young people will benefit so much from having it. The fact that it can be moved into the children’s bedrooms is just brilliant and gaming can be such a good distraction and source of pleasure for so many people.
