SpellBound provides safe, effective tools that reduce perception of pain and anxiety in pediatric patients. They also run on mobile devices that hospitals and parents already own.
Our clinical tools are simple and easy-to-use. Point a SpellBound-equipped device at any one of our targets to activate the experience, then watch lions, elephants, phoenixes, and more come to life on the screen. Patients can interact with these 3D digital characters, triggering unique experiences like games, puzzles, and quizzes.
How Can I Use These Tools?
Use SpellBound to break the ice and build trust with patients. SpellBound’s quick distract tools are perfect for capturing attention, drawing out more reserved patients, and engaging children in imaginative play, making the hospital environment less frightening.
"We have an oncology patient who challenges all of us. They had been trying to get him to participate in physical therapy and it was just awful. Screaming, yelling, biting, kicking, punching. He didn’t want to see me, but I went in and opened with the line “I have an elephant in my pocket, do you want to meet it?” and he stopped crying. We were able to get him through the entire PT session with SpellBound and what normally would have been almost a 2-hour session just to get him to get up, we were able to do in about 10 minutes with the tools.”
Use SpellBound as a distraction therapy tool to decrease the perception of pain and anxiety during procedures like IV starts, blood draws, dressing changes, and catheterizations, dramatically reducing procedural prep time and the need for sedation and pain medication.
A child life specialist was called into a patient’s room without knowing what to expect, and came in to find a little boy who was getting a catheterization. She didn’t have time to prepare, but she had SpellBound and the Magic Tree card slipped in her name badge. “The patient loved it so much. He was smiling and laughing throughout the procedure. He was making the same sounds as the animals,” she told us, “The mother of the boy was absolutely shocked to see her son laughing through a procedure that was so uncomfortable.”
