The Dutch company Qwiek develops care support products that make care moments an experience for patients. In Belgium, the Qwiek.up is already being used in residential care centers as a welfare activity. But now it will also be used for the first time in a Belgian pediatrics department to provide appropriate distraction during examinations.

The Qwiek.up was originally developed for elderly care to calm people with dementia through various experience modules. And it has been used for this purpose for some time in Belgian residential care centers and geriatric departments.But this device has now also found its way for the first time into a Belgian pediatrics department to relax or distract children during examination moments.

AZ Diest's pediatrics department has recently started using the Qwiek.up for wound care or when placing an infusion or stomach tube, for example. "By projecting one of the experience modules on the ceiling or wall, the little patients are distracted from a painful care procedure," explains head nurse Carolien Smeyers of the pediatrics department. With images of an underwater world, the Efteling or bubbles, the pediatrics patients at AZ Diest find the necessary distraction during their examination. "The idea is that the children are less anxious during medical procedures," Carolien continues, "and that they become completely absorbed in the video so that they experience less pain and are less aware of what we are doing." And that seems to work. The images of the Efteling in particular are a success, both with the young patients and the teenagers.

This first is mainly thanks to the Round Table and Ladies' Circle Diest. Thanks to their sponsorship, the purchase of the device worth € 5,000 was made possible.
