  • Eilo the Elephant is a preparation toy aimed at reducing the anxieties and fears children experience in the lead up to blood tests. Using gamification and buddy system techniques to prepare children and their parents beforehand, Eilo the Elephant helps guide children through their blood test and significantly enhance their patient experience.

    Eilo can help increase the likelihood of first-time-right testing and reassure parents and empower the child with a positive care experience.

    Utilising visual-based objective learning, the product provides emotional and cognitive support to children. The product is an innovative method of conducting medical prep that is not currently available to practitioners or patients.

    In the Eilo’s Appointment Story Book, the child playfully learns about the Blood sampling process at home with the help of Eilo and friends. The engaging book demonstrates to children how Eilo undergoes a blood test and learns the important steps required to complete the procedure.

    The child will meet up with Eilo the Elephant at the hospital and a child life specialist in the waiting room. Letting children play with the physical product allows them to discover how blood tests are administered. This can positively distract them from their fears or anxieties, thus being in more control of the situation.

    When it’s time to have the blood test, Eilo the Elephant have given the child the confidence to execute the procedure and have a positive healthcare experience.
