Staying in a hospital can be a scary experience for kids, but a little distraction can make it less stressful.

XTEND will develop a portal (work title: XRH01) designed to keep children entertained—and calm—from the moment they check in.
The portal features several applications, like games for kids to play during their downtime, but its most important features are designed to coach young patients through treatments. Short animations walk them through procedures like blood tests so that when the time comes, the situation will feel less intimidating.
