Digital visits through VR for cancer patients and families
Together with DVA Studios, for Barncancerfonden, we produced seven 360/VR-episodes to give families and patients a better understanding of the upcoming treatment
Protonresan is preparation material for children, young people and families before proton beam treatment in Uppsala. Protonresan consists of seven films that can be experienced in VR (virtual reality) and the headsets that are available at all six children’s oncology centers in the country. The material should give children, young people and their families an increased sense of empowerment and security for their upcoming treatment.
To make sure that Protonresan becomes a tool used by the national oncology centers the project made sure that the type of VR headset used was adapted for long-term use in public environments. VR can be a tricky tool to use in public spaces, and most of the users of Protonresan will be first-time VR-users. The stories have to be easy to understand, and the hardware must be easy to use.
