Pain specialists, surgeons, medical practitioners, and child life specialists are turning to virtual reality for a variety of uses. Virtual reality has existed for some time, but it's quickly evolving every day. There are many platforms that have recently become available such as the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and PlayStation VR. Unfortunately for the everyday consumer, expensive gaming computers or consoles are required to provide true virtual reality experiences. We've made it our mission to provide this technology, free of charge, to ill or immobilized kids who may not have access to such equipment. Like television, movies, or video games, virtual reality may cause adverse effects. The virtual reality headset may affect the operation of nearby electronics, including cardiac pacemakers. It's important that you consult with your pediatrician prior to your child experiencing virtual reality.

What is theraputic VR?
Therapeutic VR takes focus off discomfort that accompanies extended hospital or home stays, medical treatments, and procedures. Through our custom made immersive storybooks, viewers can travel to exciting places, meeting funny characters along the way, exploring a new world around them; all the while being mentally and emotionally transported to a fun, positive and relaxing space to play. The experience is complemented by the exciting immersive effects of the Oculus Rift.
