ditto-devicesClinical Trials

There is a new emphasis in the clinical arena to establish better anxiety management for children undergoing medical treatment and procedures. With advancements in the understanding of anxiety, protocols have evolved into a mixture of medication and diversionary therapy principles that holistically improve management.

The Royal Children’s Hospital Brisbane Centre for Burns Research has written a number of clinical papers about ditto™. Controlled, randomized trials show ditto™ measurably and significantly reduces distress and anxiety in children in the clinical environment, improves the productivity of medical professionals and delivers substantial cost benefits to health administrators.

Diversionary Therapy Technologies maintains close links with Professor Roy Kimble and staff at the Royal Children’s Hospital Brisbane, and continues to monitor feedback gained in regular clinical trials.
