What do we do?

We create therapeutic tools that distract, engage and motivate children during their hospital treatment while offering moments of joy and wonder.


How do we do it?

We use smartphones and tablets to create interactive 3D experiences on top of printed cards and books, with a technology called augmented reality (AR).


Why do we do it?

We know how important pediatric therapists are to the well-being of children – as parents, we’ve lived through it ourselves.

What are people saying about SpellBound?

It’s not just something for the patients. It’s something for the brothers and sisters, the cousins and all the friends, to look forward to when they come to the hospital to visit. It makes the hospital less scary for them as well.

We had a 20-year-old play with the books for 40 minutes. It was something she had never seen before.
— J.J., CCLS
A lot of people are really impressed when I bring these [books and cards] out and show them what they can do…Parents think they’re great…sometimes I feel like the parent wants to push the kid aside and play with it themselves.
— Jamie, Rehab Engineer/Occupational Therapist
I was able to calm a child freaking out during a blood draw using the [Quick Distract] card.
