Terminally sick children experience much of their youth in hospital
beds and spend most of their time away from friends and family. Some children who do not have adequate time with their parents are at risk of living a life feeling adrift, not connected in a positive manner that lends itself to productive behavior. Unfortunately, Parents canʼt always be with their children as itʼs impossible for them to work and support themselves and their family at home while attending to their child at the hospital 24/7.
Aevum is an interactive display mechanism that provides a visual connection between all parties present during a sick childʼs care. Aevum is housed in the hospital ceiling, where it provides entertainment for the child and an observation system. Parents are able to observe and obtain piece of mind in knowing their child is in proper care. The device is activated using a gesture control system and swings down to the patient, giving him or her the ability to do their homework, have fun with digital games and activities, and communicate with loved ones. Doctors and nurses can also find use for the Aevum by using itʼs ability to display charts and other crucial medical information to parents and colleagues.
