What is it about?

"vi.co" stands for Visual Communication. People with communication disorders and in particular people suffering from Autistic Spectrum Disorders are assisted in understanding messages if they are conveyed using visual languages. These, in fact, being more immediate in nature, are typically perceived above and beyond their symbolic function and are therefore also intuitable to those suffering from intellectual disabilities. The reception of people affected by ASD or by other psychiatric or communication related disorders in hospitals, in many cases constitutes a problem for both the patient, as well as for the medical and nursing staff, who may be faced with bizarre behaviour and unexpected reactions.

App Store Description

"vi.co" stands for Visual Communication. People with communication disorders and in particular people suffering from Autistic Spectrum Disorders are assisted in understanding messages if they are conveyed using visual languages. These, in fact, being more immediate in nature, are typically perceived above and beyond their symbolic function and are therefore also intuitable to those suffering from intellectual disabilities. The reception of people affected by ASD or by other psychiatric or communication related disorders in hospitals, in many cases constitutes a problem for both the patient, as well as for the medical and nursing staff, who may be faced with bizarre behaviour and unexpected reactions.
The "vi.co Hospital" application is a communication interface, intended for the interaction between individuals affected by ASD and medical and nursing staff, therapeutic operators, families and care-givers.
Depending on the individual level of understanding, it is possible to select between the use of an iconic code, a photographic code or video, for showing and demonstrating in detail and step by step, to those affected by difficulties, the way visits, physical examinations, medical tests, etc. are carried out.
Following the principles of behavioural psychology, the individual gradually proceeds with success to the performance of each procedural step, earning a token that at the end will correspond to a reward for their cooperation.
