Engaging kids in healthcare can be one of the many hard tasks of a health professional, but surely one of the most rewarding.
Nowadays, creating technologic platforms for health education is more than an alternative; it’s mandatory.
This is certainly going in that direction: Medikidz - medical information for kids!
The 5 Medikidz – Axon, Gastro, Skinderella, Pump and Chi – are a “group of larger-than-life. space-dwelling characters” that live on a 3D virtual world, a planet called Mediland and shaped as the human body. By using graphic novels, medicine information pamphlets, an online information edutainment environment, online games, and of course, social networking, the Medikidz are determined to explain medical concepts in a simple and understandable way, empowering children and their parents. Everything starting in next July.
This is the 3D view of the Stomach Room with some food in it.
Will it be possible for grown-up docs to pay a visit? I would love to take a journey trough Mediland and remind those days of “Il était une fois la vie”.
