The Pengunaut Trainer is free of charge and available in German and English for all interested parties in the Google Play Store and soon also as an iOS version. After the positive feedback from children, parents, and the medical staff, we want to continue the project in the future. Unfortunately, this is associated with costs that are not yet covered. In addition to maintenance and care of the app – any update of the smartphone operating systems make it necessary to update the app – we have so many more ideas. One of our heart’s desires, for example, is to translate the Pengunaut Trainer into other languages so that even more children can train with our app and prepare for the MRI. It would also be great if each child could get their own VR Viewer – the smartphone holder that turns their parents’ smartphone into fully functional VR goggles – right when their appointment for an MRI examination is made.
