Kitten Scanner

The project

The Kitten Scanner is intended for the waiting room of children’s clinics or wards. Unfortunately, children also sometimes have to undergo a medical CAT or CT examination. Children learn what a CAT scan is, how it works, and why they need it. Philips tries to dispel the fear of this extra vulnareable group of users.

Committee

Unfortunately, sometimes a child has to undergo a CAT- or CT-scan as part of its treatment. Philips Design designed the Kitten Scanner to help alleviate fear. The device is placed in the waiting room, where children can play with it and understand what will happen to them during the examination.
