Wilhelmina Children's Hospital

Forgetting you are ill for a moment.

Playing sports or playing in general as a means to forget you are ill for at least a moment; that is one of the reasons why the Wilhelmina Children’s hospital in Utrecht, the Netherlands, has implemented a sports facility on their roof-terrace.

The children themselves opened the spectacular sports cage, under the watchful eye of the mayor of Zanen and Dutch ice-skating legend Jochem Uytdehaage. A young boy named George sat in his wheelchair, threw a ball onto the top panels of the Yalp Sutu Interactive ball wall, and with that, not only was the sports cage opened but also the National Sportsweek had been commenced.

Making rehabilitating more fun

Jochem Uytdehaage: “Through smart technology used in these playsets, you not only make playing and rehabilitating more fun and challenging, but you can also check the results as they are measured, which inspires competitivity. That’s very motivating and helps stimulate the rehabilitation process at the hospital, but also inspires healthy giddy-ness in children.” Playing and sporting aren’t just nice to forget about the worries for a minute, but also adds to the fitness and health. The Wilhelmina Children’s hospital and Yalp will work together to utilize the interactive playsets in other rehabilitation projects.

If you would like to know more about these efforts, don’t hesitate to send an e-mail to contact@yalp.com.

After the opening, a few kids like Iris and her father (seen on the photo) went to play. Her reaction after a game on the Sutu”Can we go again, dad!”
