What are DistrACTION® Cards?

DistrACTION® cards are a carefully designed tool used for the cognitive distraction from painful procedures. Our DistrACTION® Cards consist of 5 colorful cards on a snap ring that is easily attached to a hospital badge or carried in your pocket or purse. There are four different themed sets of cards with age-appropriate questions on the back of each card. The questions offer finding and counting tasks for the user to answer, providing natural pain relief by drawing attention away from painful procedures. No training needed, simply flip a card toward the patient and ask the age-appropriate question on the back.
