The benefits of immersive VR

 

MK360 is used in the groundbreaking clinical study “The Albert Project” funded by the Canadian Ministry of Health in the treatment of Alzheimer’s and other degenerative brain disorders using immersive technology.

Research project

 

The Albert Project is focused on improving the quality of life for patients living with Alzheimer’s and dementia in long-term care facilities with the support of the Centre for Aging and Brain Health Innovation led by Baycrest.

325 participants

 

During this research, up to 325 elderly residents with Alzheimer’s or dementia are getting the chance to try the MK360 VR experiences, Dr. Karen Campbell from Western University leads the trial.

Communal sensory experience

 

Multiple people and the medical staff can also enjoy the experience at once, adding to the feeling of connection and creating a communal sensory experience, leading to group discussions that can be shared after the session is finished.

Virtual reality experience for care home residents with dementia

 

Dr. Campbell’s team has published the results of the preliminary study that suggest a good acceptance of the experience and a positive effect on behavior in the majority of the residents (improvement of sleep, interaction with images or with caregivers, expressions of happiness, etc.) and a decrease in the use of psychotropic drugs in 1/3 of patients with moderate to severe dementia. The authors conclude that “Considering the burden of Behavioral and Psychological Symptoms of Dementia (BPSD) on older adults with dementia and their caregivers, virtual reality experience is a possible non-pharmacologic intervention in managing BPSD in long-term care homes.” Click here to read the full report.

MK360’s app intuitive interface makes it easy for patients and the medical staff to control the curated content via smartphone.
