The CHARIOT team at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford knows that undergoing surgery, anaesthesia and procedures can be especially stressful for children. The goal of the program is to implement new technologies in the hospital that are nontraditional yet familiar to children in an effort to engage and distract them during these times. The focus is on taking existing technologies and creating new ones to address the unique needs of individual patients.
The Stanford environment offers a unique opportunity to create a team of physicians, engineers, researchers and child life professionals. The team is currently piloting virtual reality experiences such as swimming with Wild Dolphins, new tablet-based apps and interactive bedside projector-based games.
