Dag Liesbreuk is a personal app that helps families with young children prepare, understand and process a groin rupture (liesbreuk) treatment.
Dag Liesbreuk starts with a special guide for the parents/caretakers. There they will find every information they need about the hospital, the treatment and the preparations itself. This way, parents know exactly what will happen, so they can calmly prepare their children. On their own way.
By personal avatars, pictures from your hospital and happy animations, Dag Liesbreuk helps families to get together and talk about the treatment. It makes it easier to talk about feelings of fear, anger or joy.
Dag Liesbreuk is for the whole family, also for the brothers or sisters! Everybody can create his own avatar and gets his own role. This makes the preparation personal, so everybody knows exactly what will happen and feels control about the situation.
Being well prepared on a hospital treatment and the recovery period gives more confidence, rest and grip. This is important to be able to process feelings of anxiety and stress, and ensures a good and quick recovery after the medical intervention.
Dag liesbreuk is a product of the Hoi Dokter foundation, in collaboration with the Kinderchirurgisch Centrum Amsterdam, Maastricht UMC+ and design agency Familie van Fonk.
