BRIDGING THE DISCONNECT

A topic I continue to focus on is the disconnect between how mental health and physical health are treated in hospitals, especially in pediatrics. Through my research I found that the best ways to improve a patients mental health while they are undergoing treatment for diseases that require months at a time in the hospital, is positive distractions that help their mental health as well as their physical health.

Bridging the disconnect between mind + body: a wearable made up of muscle sensors is used to track the patients strength and target areas that need the most strengthening through an interactive web application to gamify the rehabilitation process while also providing a positive escape from the hospital.
