iPads for inPatients
Organized by: iPads for inPatients
Every cent we raise will go towards buying old and refurbished tablets, which we will wipe clean and download popular applications and books. Patients are bed bound in their rooms for nearly 24 hours of the day with nothing but a television to keep them occupied. But watching TV is simply receptive and after a few hours, they are completely tired of it. With tablets, they have an unlimited amount of interactive activities at their fingertips, activities that can keep their mind occupied from their pain or condition. True, many people have tablets themselves, but not a lot of people will bring their devices to a hospital for fear of germs. By working closely with Infection Control, we can ensure that each device is completely sanitized before being brought into a patients room. Please help us, we are donating all of our time into this projects but that's not enough for it to succeed. Just imagine being locked in your room for 24 hours of the day for many days with only a television. Wouldn't you want to be able to play games or Skype with friends or even just get the latest news and updates immediately?
