Child Patient Experience

Patient ExperienceResearchTools

For my research semester during my masters at Industrial Design (ID), I conducted research using the interactive medical mask is designed by Alice van Beukering, an alumnus of ID. The design is a child-friendly interactive mask design to distract and calm children during minor procedures.


The design research focused on the relation between engagement & enjoyment and to the experienced control by children that are breathing through an interactive medical mask. It focused on the potential of using interactive technology to distract the child in a playful and pleasant way.


 The project was in close cooperation with Maastricht University Medical Center+ (Maastricht UMC+) and contributed to a program working towards the implementation of Procedural Sedation and Analgesia in peadiatric care.
