Two new motion-activated projection systems are being put to good use in the Childrens Ward and the Cove Childrens Clinic at the James Paget, thanks to fundraising by the Ward 10 team and donations from local businesses.
The equipment – the omiVista mobile system – projects images onto the floor which are interactive. Children can choose from a variety of backdrops and then can chase balloons, bubbles, disco balls and a range of other items from the image simply by walking or tapping on them. The activity is entertaining and fun and also helps with movement during recovery. The mobile unit can be moved wherever it is required on the ward and creates the interactive surface on any floor at the touch of a button.
Money for the equipment came thanks to a Ward 10 quiz night, a raffle where a number of local businesses kindly donated prizes, and a donation from the Top Body Gym in Gorleston.
