Cases Offer Drop Protection and Security So Kids Can Enjoy the Tablets While in Treatment or Recovering from Procedures
I noticed that during my visit to one of the schools students, Andy who was also an oncology patient at Childrens Hospital found great joy and comfort from using an iPad to Skype with friends and play games using apps during his hospital stay, said Foy. So we asked families at Webb School if they would be willing to donate their iPads to Childrens Hospital to help other kids like Andy keep their minds off of their illnesses and pending procedures.
As a result of Foys request, Andys friends at the school set out to honor their classmate by donating 50 iPads, 50 cases, multiple iPad apps and games towards the mission of comforting kids at the hospital. The Andys iPads program will continue to be managed by Webb students, including loading apps and games at no cost. The students are supporting continuation of the program through an annual fundraising event.
The hospital uses Kensington SafeGrip Rugged iPad Cases to keep the donated iPads clean and safely locked, with the option to tether the case to a childs bed. The thick, sturdy handle which is sized for smaller hands doubles as a two-position stand for greater flexibility of use.
Were thrilled to contribute to this essential program by offering the tough padded protection of SafeGrip Rugged iPad Cases, which deliver strong tablet protection thats designed with childrens iPad usage habits in mind, said Gwen Hsu, senior director of Global Product Managment, Kensington. SafeGrip is the perfect solution to protect the donated tablets in the Andys iPads program against damage due to accidental drops and bumps while guarding the screen from scratches and smudges.
Cheryl Allmon, director of Volunteer Services and Programs at East Tennessee Childrens Hospital, said the program is having an incredible impact on the lives of patients at the facility. The iPads are being used in many ways that we didnt anticipate when the program first started, said Allmon. We want to keep growing the program by adding more iPads and apps for the patients to use.
She added that Kensingtons secure cases and locking devices are a key component to keeping the program running smoothly. SafeGrip protects the iPads, allowing smaller patients to handle them and keeping them from breaking if a patient accidently drops them, said Allmon.
Certified by the state of Tennessee as the only Comprehensive Regional Pediatric Center in East Tennessee, East Tennessee Childrens Hospital in Knoxville is a 152-bed, not-for-profit, private, independent pediatric medical center. The hospital is accredited by the Joint Commission and offers more pediatric subspecialties than any other hospital in Knoxville and the greater East Tennessee region.
