hospitals can be scary, especially for kids. but one college student came up with a way to help put them at ease. a little creativity and imagination is all it took.. the idea is to turn the kids' i-v bags into a source for superpowers. stacey sager reports.

"and it is a simple paper sleeve that transforms the hospital room into an opportunity to get superpowers."like shadow control to hide if you're a quick shadow, or if you're diamond mask. "impervious to anything, she can turn her skin into diamond, make the kids feel strong."especially if they're more seriously ill than erik. he's the ninth pediatric patient to try i-v heroes at this hospital. the others all had cancer or blood disorders, but gave the product very high marks. "now eventually the goal is to heroes come for a visit, like disney princesses? his patent-pending product is something bobby would love to do, maybe even include versions for adults as well. they cost under a dollar each
to because for now it's all about the sister of a 2-year-old patient.
and asks for super sally because she wants to make her little sister feel safe." "you introduce these covers, and they seem to calm down."such a simple concept that seems priceless. hospital officials with a children's cancer center that first tested the superhero i-v bags say they've had tremendous results. they say 100-percent of their patients were in a better mood after the superhero i-v was installed. the invention will soon be adopted at 21 new york city hospitals. stick around, we'll
