Our mission is to help combat and treat childhood sexual abuse through the use of technology and the natural play process of children.
Very often when adults violates the trust of children in a sexual way it makes it very difficult for them (children) to trust adults and that causes a delay disclosure
When that discloure finally happens there are a 70% chances of Re-Victimization
When Disclusure happen the professionals are being accused of overinterpreting the responses of children which causes perpetrators to be released back into the community to reoffend.
•DIAGNOSE PHYSICAL ABUSE
•SERVICE SEXUAL ABUSE CHILDREN UNDER 5 YEARS
PRODUCT/ HOW DOES IT SOLVE PROBLEM
Our product records up to 10 hours of conversation between it and child/ren. The sensors throughout the instrument monitors the child's vital and stress levels. Sensors also record data of inappropriate problematic touching and with the vaginal and anal opening should the child/ren pushes their fingers through the opening we will be able to recorder how many times it happened and what was the elevated heart rate while doing so. This data is then being analyze and transcribe for the professional to assist with assessment and treatment planning.
Unlike the anatomical doll his is also a method of diagnosing a child with any form of psychosocial disorders. It is a revolutionary method of diagnosing a child with PTSD stemming from any form of abuse (physical, sexual, emotional) through a novel play therapy approach that will potentially cut down the original diagnosis time. The innovation is that we have developed a groundbreaking diagnostic modality that would expedite the diagnose process of a child in exponentially less time than what is currently available. Treatment can take up to 1 year and even well into adulthood and through our preliminary findings using this instrument we saw diagnostic result in a matter of a week.
With this diagnostic instrument the child’s therapeutic environment can be customized if necessary. Traditional therapeutic environment is considered controlled and sometimes children are not comfortable in a controlled environment so at the discretion of the professional, if the child feels more comfortable at home the instrument can be sent home for a specific amount of time, so it’s not only a foreign therapist office environment, we are taking this diagnostic instrument and taking it outside of that environment to one that is more comfortable for the child. It’s not just customization for the child but for the therapist as well.
