The emergence of Multi Modal Distraction (MMD) has occurred following appraisal of the developmental and clinical concerns surrounding Virtual Reality's (VR) applicability to pediatric pain management. MMD was developed to expand current distraction tools and technology available for pain management in the pediatric population. This paper will examine how the challenges faced by VR have motivated the collaborative design and development process of MMD. It will then outline the continuous clinical trialling being undertaken to ensure its efficacy in managing childhood procedural anxiety and pain. © 2008 The authors. All rights reserved.
