VR is Far More Psychologically Powerful Than Any Medium Ever Invented
For mental health therapy, Limbix VR allows patients to interact in authentic, virtual environments. Patients can face their fears, practice conversations, visit remote locations, and relax in tranquil settings.
Limbix VR provides for VR headsets, tablet mirroring, and controls that seamlessly connects to a VR headset via Bluetooth, allowing for mirroring and selection of VR content. Limbix VR environments are built from panoramic images and videos to experience true “presence” with visceral sensations. Patient experiences include teleporting patients around the world to the scene of an important life event or take them to tranquil nature environments where they can relax. With VR and AR field service, therapists can gradually expose patients to phobias or sources of distress to increase a patient’s anxiety tolerance to distressing situations.
VR can play a meaningful role in the treatment and therapies associated with anxiety, depression, addiction, trauma and phobias. VR and AR field service technologies are thus providing professionals – and their clients – with tools to significantly enhance productive therapies and interventions towards better mental health.
“VR is far more psychologically powerful than any medium ever invented and is poised to dramatically transform our lives. ” – JEREMY BAILENSON & THOMAS MORE STORKE, PROFESSOR OF COMMUNICATION, STANFORD UNIVERSITY
