Bringing immersive

solutions to senior care

Immersive technology for therapeutic uses

 

The immersive sessions powered by the MK360 introduces preloaded immersive content that allows seniors to cope with cognitive disorders such as Alzheimer’s and dementia by creating meaningful experiences that generate mental stimuli. The immersive experiences are being implemented at nursing homes and senior care facilities to serve as a tool for medical practitioners to engage the senior community on transformative cognitive and physical practices and have been proven beneficial at DomusVi and Grup Arrels in Spain and also through the Albert Project in Canada. 

Revolutionizing healthcare practices

 

VR immersive experiences can be used for palliative care by redirecting the patient’s focus to pleasant situations with projections of relaxing places or introducing interactive games. Scientific studies have shown that VR is beneficial when treating pain by stimulating the brain to block pain receptors, just as an analgesic would work. Immersive experiences can also be used in therapies where patients need stimuli to move; interactive games increase the therapy’s engagement, resulting in more excitement and stimulation.

Mental health treatment

 

These technologies have also been proven beneficial in treating mental illnesses when used on patient’s anxiety and stress levels and in treating phobias such as agoraphobia and claustrophobia, among others. A significant advantage of the VR experience is the immersive contact with what affects the patient. By placing patients in the focus of their apprehension, they can face such nervousness and get used to the situation that causes the feeling; it creates an environment where they can access the root of their fear allowing medical professionals to treat it better.
