2 Aprile 2015 Giornata Mondiale dell'Autismo:
Il servizio di Sky TG 24 dedicato a "vi.co".
The app that simplifies life for those affected by communication problems.
The Fondazione Bambini e Autismo Onlus (Children and Autism Foundation Onlus) is one of the centres of excellence in the field of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). For years, the Foundation has developed a total care model, both transversal in nature, with the involvement of families, schools and the territory, as well as longitudinal ("from the cradle to grave").
vi.co stands for Visual Communication. People with communication disorders and in particular people suffering from Autistic Spectrum Disorders are assisted in understanding messages if they are conveyed using visual languages.
Vi.co Hospital has been designed and tested by the Fondazione Bambini e Autismo ONLUS research team, with the goal to develop clear, step by step procedures organised in a simple and well-structured platform.
Thanks to these characteristics, during use, a significant improvement in the compliance of children and adults suffering from Autism Spectrum Disorders was immediately detected, with respect to the visits and examinations to which the patients were subjected.
Currently available procedures are: ultrasonography, electrocardiogram (ECG), electroencephalogram, physical examination, plaster of paris for broken arms, drawing blood, chest X-ray, radiography of arms, remove plaster of paris from arm, swab test, mask application, vaccination, Ophthalmology visit, dental visit, otolaryngology - ENT specialist.
