Journey to Recovery
by Claudia Buck (CH), Randy Chen (CH)
In a sleep treatment that aims at improving the quality of sleep, children lose interest as the therapy proceeds. The daily tasks are tedious and repetitive, while the sleep device's usability is complex and confusing. This leads the children to abandon their sleep treatment prematurely. “Journey to Recovery” is a companion app that helps children use the sleep device with Augmented Reality and keeps them engaged by means of a captivating and informative story. “Journey to Recovery” has been awarded with multiple awards for its innovation and its outstanding process: the ZHdK Förderpreis (2020), the SDA Bachelor Award (2020) and the aed neuland Gold Award, category Interaction Design (2021).
