This month, we are featuring a startup from Italy that improves adherence to therapy of children reducing their stress levels with virtual reality and objectively measuring this outcome with AI.
Digital Technology At The Service Of Therapy
The correlation between our emotional status and our physiology is becoming more and more clear and documented. Researchers are introducing virtual reality into a hospital to support patients starting from their mind and emotions, to increase therapy’s acceptance and generate a better follow up. The first trials around the world are gaining positive results about the therapeutical effects of VR in fields such as pain management and anxiety reduction, encouraging the work in this innovative promising field.
Emotional Support - Focused on the emotional needs of the children to reduce stress deriving from anxiety, fear, pain, and loneliness.
Virtual Reality: Offering an immersive digital world to engage and distract children from their daily hospital routine supporting their well being.
Collaborative Gameplay- Involving both children and their caregivers to help both overcome loneliness and distance during the hospitalization.
Data - Collecting and measuring motor, sensory and cognitive data during children gaming sessions, in order to provide objective metrics of patients conditions and stress levels useful to medical specialists to track, customize and improve therapy.
