XRHealth, formerly known as VRHealth, a provider of extended reality and therapeutic applications announced it is opening their platform to third-party developers to create robust VR healthcare experiences. A noteworthy partnership created through the open platform is Healium that enables patients to “see” and power VR technology through their emotions.
Healium: Powering VR With Emotions
Approximately 75% to 90% of all doctor visits are due to stress-related issues. Healium developed a biometrically- controlled solution that is designed to reduce anxiety and stress. In fact, the solution itself is powered by the user’s memories of calm and positivity via their wearables, where users can see their emotions and heal worlds virtually. A Frontiers in Psychology study noted in just four minutes, the Healium solution shifted EEG brain patterns associated with anxiety to more relaxed states.
“We applaud the great work XRHealth is doing to get therapeutic media into the hands of more people. Stress is responsible for 60% of all illness and disease so Healium’s biometrically-powered stories are a natural complement to XRHealth’s existing library,” said Sarah Hill, CEO & Chief Storyteller for StoryUP, the company that makes Healium.
XRHealth provides patients across the globe with a large variety of VR medical and wellness solutions that are immersive and effective. XRHealth’s solution monitors user data so that doctors, caregivers, and patients can have full access to how each solution is affecting a patients’ health and control the patient VR world and experiences remotely.
“Stress is a factor that contributes to most fatal diseases,” XRHealth CEO Eran Orr says. “By reducing stress and encouraging feelings of positivity we are enabling recovery, preventing future illnesses, and enabling patients to live a happier and more fulfilling life.”
