Theraport

Reaching the unreachable in therapy

THE CHALLENGE

Some children with psychological challenges are not able to attend regular therapy. They might refuse to meet up for appointments or even leave their room. This means that they do not receive the care that they need and are entitled to.

The clinicians are highly motivated to engage their patients in therapy sessions. Some try to visit the children at home and others constantly look for new ways in which they can adapt their treatment methods to the child's context. Children have a natural curiosity for technology and the clinicians at the Department of Children's Mental Health at Oslo University Hospital wished to explore this space in creating new treatment methods.

Theraport

THE SOLUTION

In Theraport we use the possibilities in mixed reality to facilitate patient-therapist sessions for children that are hard to reach wherever the patients might be. Through "holoporting" the therapist, Theraport provides proximity between the therapist and the patient on the terms of the child. For example, we use avatars and games to motivate patients to participate in the therapy sessions.

I believe that we can use mixed reality to reach the unreachable children.
