Chinese children’s hospital unveils fun way to transport young patients to operating room

A children’s hospital in central China’s Hunan province has unveiled a new way to transport young patients to the operating room: remote-control toy cars.

The mini cars, unveiled at Hunan Children’s Hospital, allow young patients to “drive” themselves to the operating room. The idea behind it is to make the children more relaxed before surgery.

The novel approach has benefited more than 100 young patients aged between one and six.
