Adventure Squad and Rabbit Avenger are augmented reality apps that leverage storytelling and gamification to engage pediatric hospital patients in physical activity. The apps lead 8- to 13-year-old patients on a journey through the hospital floor to find clues and solve problems. Collaborating with UNC pediatrician and faculty member Dr. Richard Hobbs, M.D., the Lab designed the experience to improve patient outcomes and solve the problem of motivating long-term pediatric patients to exercise.
