Lori LeSueur, a Child Life Specialist at the Arizona Burn Center explained, "The ditto™ offers a quality combination of education, engaging games, and appealing stories to enhance children's understanding and coping with the hospital stay." She adds, "The easy navigation of this device, by children and adults alike, in both wet and dry procedural environments make it an asset to any facility. It is an unparalleled tool in pediatric patient care."
Doctors, surgeons, nurses, play specialists, and animation teams developed the ditto™ over the course of six years and subjected it to more than eight independent clinical trials that have demonstrated its effectiveness. New procedures, games and stories are continuously being added to the range of programs available, as DTT continues to work with experts to establish fresh content.
