We provide a first-time introduction to virtual reality using the Oculus Rift head-mounted display and our own customized VR experiences. We bring VR to the viewer, in the home or hospital, with all of the necessary equipment to create a customized therapeutic virtual world. We tailor our experiences for each person, allowing for a unique and individualized session to cater to the viewers' needs, interests, or abilities.
Establishing recurring therapeutic VR sessions allows us to continually and more extensively explore the positive mental and physical connections forged in virtual reality. At the scheduler's discretion, we get to continually create a place where the viewer is transported to personalized therapeutic VR adventures, each time a unique and engaging event. These sessions allow us to observe and cater to each person needs, interests, and abilities more comprehensively.
We bring the immersive, engaging, and always entertaining world of virtual reality to the viewer when they could truly use a moment to get away, laugh, and relax: before an operation or other intensive medical procedure. Since VR can trick the brain into believing it is actually in the computer-generated world, VR takes the mind away for a few moments of peace, comedy, adventure, or whatever compelling VR experience is chosen. This time of escape allows the viewer to relax and de-stress both mentally and physically, creating a more beneficial medical experience overall.
Virtual reality is a computer-simulated environment consisting of three-dimensional images and sounds, making for an immersive and interactive experience for any user.
When presented correctly virtual reality can cause a user to suspend belief in the real world around them, thus accepting the simulated environment in which they are participating in to be real.
Virtual reality proves to be successful by way of the human senses, specifically sight and sound. Keeping in mind that we all perceive our senses differently, each experience can prove to be unique from the next user, truly creating a distinct experience for all.
Our software is designed to be used with the Oculus Rift head-mounted display. Regarded as the pioneers of next generation virtual reality, the folks at Oculus VR have created the perfect platform for us to share our work as it supports the multi-sensory elements contained in our environments.
The Rift uses custom tracking technology to track movements of the head, thus allowing a user to view the virtual world just as he or she would in real life. The Oculus Rift platform and the custom VR Kids software make for a great pairing, creating an interactive and immersive experience that is second to none.
