Smileyscope is an innovative, drug-free solution that uses the immersion and wonder of virtual reality to keep kids still and calm, allowing clinicians to insert needles safely and successfully. In this talk, we'll discuss the process of creating this VR experience from inception through to production and clinical trials. We'll discuss what worked and what didn't work, focusing on the creative, technical and hospital/health considerations as well as discussing trial outcomes and next steps.
