Hosted by certified healthcare professionals, patients can interact in groups of up to 10 people. Sharing experiences, discussing challenges and fears, help in coping and alleviating social isolation.
Virtual reality brings people together, by immersing them into the same digital environment, creating intimate interactions that are not possible with any other mediums of remote communication. Specifically, for support groups, studies have shown that self-representation in virtual reality through digital avatars helps people overcome their initial hesitation and facilitates the sharing of personal thoughts and emotions.
Virtual Reality is providing healing opportunities to patients that cannot leave their homes, that are immobile or unable to engage with a group in-person and offers them support and assistance. Virtual reality support groups also enable leading clinicians to provide high quality care to patients they might otherwise not have access to.
The ability for patients to connect with each other in VR and with a group moderator is powered by Foretell Reality.
