VRHealth, a Boston and Israel-based digital health company providing specialized virtual reality (VR) technology solutions and data analysis, today announced the launch of the first telehealth-VR medical platform that includes apps specifically designed for consumers to use at home.
VR Health is participating in AARP Innovation Labs. As part of the company’s collaboration with AARP, VRhealth has a residency in AARP Innovation Lab and is integrating core features of its product into the “Health and Wellness” section of Alcove VR, a virtual reality experience that enables families to connect no matter their budget, time or mobility constraints.
In addition to being accessible in Alcove, VRHealth apps are now available for download from the Oculus store where customers will also get access to full data analysis via the VRHealth web portal. The new platform enables remote monitoring capabilities for physicians and family members acting as caregivers, so they can access vital healthcare data in real-time.
VRHealth Telehealth App Overview
VRHealth’s new telehealth app allows patients to grant access to their healthcare data to key participants in the medical process so that necessary adjustments can be made based on critical medical insights. The platform offers a variety of apps for different use cases, including brain health applications that aim to stimulate executive functions, memory span and cognitive skills, neck exercises, and pain management techniques. In addition, one of the apps contains a virtual therapist that utilizes AI technology to adapt the evidence-based psychological protocols to the specific needs of the user and help reduce the physical and psychological effects of hot flashes. The apps are VR-based and include immersive, engaging activities in a 360-degree environment.
“Our telehealth platform is a crucial step in the healthcare process because it enables patients to engage in a healthcare routine in the comfort of their own home while providing access to their data directly to their doctors,” VRHealth CEO Eran Orr says. “Any adjustments that need to be made to a patient healthcare regime can be adjusted based on the data in the platform.”
VRHealth’s solutions utilize artificial intelligence (AI) and cloud-computing algorithms to deliver advanced data analytics. Utilizing sophisticated tracking tools, VRHealth provides data analysis, as the patient is engaged in VR therapy so that doctors and clinicians can personalize and customize healthcare solutions for their patients.
