University Hospitals of North Midlands

Radiology for Kids:
SGIL were commissioned by the University Hospital of the North Midlands NHS Trust, to build a platform whereby children who were due to visit the Radiology department of the hospital could familiarise themselves with the look, feel and noise that they would experience when visiting the department. The platform combines the use of panoramic photography taken around the department, with videos and audio of the machinery, as well as animated characters. This has all been pulled together with a friendly user interface designed by the 2D art team at SGIL. An additional aspect of gamification, whereby the child gets awarded a badge when they have completed the sections in the platform, was also included. The Hospital were exceptionally happy with the design of the badges within the game, they have turned these into real life stickers that the nurses give to the child when they have attended the department.
