Patchie- Therapy can be fun
The Patchie smartphone application is a therapeutic game, which is created to help children understand the events and processes they experience in their therapy from day to day using a child-orientated approach. Patchie has the same disease as the child and therefore also the same needs. That’s why Patchies well-being and its relationship to the therapy will be reflected by the child to his/her own therapy and well-being. By using an age appropriate Tamagotchi like creature, the game leads the children to an independent and responsible way to accomplish their therapy including all necessary elements.The game is a new alternative to the traditional therapy methods and accompanies the child through the whole day. The fundamental part of the game is the therapy schedule, which can be individually set up by their parents or caregivers and the help of the treating doctor. It contains an overview and management section for the parents and includes all indispensable functionalities.
