New service for health professionals

 

Healthcare professionals perform their routinary work in stressful environments, in continuous contact with people who have problems and who suffer. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a highly negative impact on the emotional health of healthcare professionals. At Fundació Hospital d’Olot i Comarcal de la Garrotxa, the immersive therapy offered by Broomx have been used in a research study to improve axiety and emotional well-being in healthcare professionals.

An innovative therapeutic practice

 

With the objective to analyze the results of immersive therapy on the levels of anxiety and well-being of the health professionals working in a regional hospital in Olot (Spain), the hospital decided to initiate a research quasi-experimental study including a group of 35 health professionals. These professioanls undertook immersive therapy for 8 weeks, consisting on a minimum of 10 minutes of immersive sessions 2 times a week. The intervention was implemented using the MK360 system and a selection of relaxing content we created for them.

Improving the healthcare professionals anxiety levels

 

A statistically significant improvement in anxiety and well-being was found, and these changes were clinically significant. Their findings indicated that over 85% of the participants increased their mental well-being, moving from moderate or severe anxiety levels to mild or no anxiety levels.

On August 2022, this study was published at the scientific peer-reviewed International Journal of Environmental Research and Publich Health.

New applications

 

Following the success of the emotional well-being project, in 2022 the Hosptial has started a pioneering study to evaluate the use of immersive reality technology as a tool for the rehabilitation of hemianopsia in patients who suffered brain stroke. The clinical psychologist of the hospital, Dra. Marta Linares, created a rehabilitation program using Broomx technology and is carrying out case studies of different patients. “These pioneering sessions in the field of neurorehabilitation allow the visual immersion of the doctor and the patient in different scenarios created by Broomx. The interactions with the elements that are projected in the room is also posible, for example drawing and painting on the walls and the ceiling of the room in order to activate patient’s peripheral vision.”
