TINKER IMAGINEERS - Five characters, Hugg, Happy, Fold, C-bot and Vizzle, play the main roles in the children’s experience. These little friends accompany the patients on their journey through the new Juliana Children’s Hospital and appear everywhere. In the most nerve-racking situations, such as the corridor to the OR, the treatment rooms and the elevators, these characters come to life in moving projections and interactive animations.
The goal of the concept was to create a wondrous world that would provide distraction. Research shows that a child-friendly, distracting environment reduces stress and the perception of pain in sick children, which helps them to recover sooner.
