TWIDH – Augmented Reality, AI, and Gaming Empowers Young Patients

TWIDH – This week’s host Aline Noizet sits down with Dom Raban, the co-founder of Xploro. This unique Digital Therapeutics platform delivers health information to young patients using augmented reality, artificial intelligence, and games.

Xploro® is an award-winning and clinically validated health information platform that uses augmented reality, gameplay, and artificial intelligence to deliver health information to young patients in a way that makes them feel empowered, engaged, and informed while having fun at the same time.

By putting health information in children’s hands, using language they understand and interaction paradigms they are familiar with, we aim to reduce their stress and anxiety and improve their clinical outcomes. In addition, by reducing the fear associated with procedures, we aim to reduce repeat procedures and shorten treatment times. Finally, by improving child health literacy, we provide the foundations for a generation of patients better able to self-manage their healthcare.
