The social VR multi-person spaces provider and a subsidiary of The Glimpse Group, Foretell Reality, is partnering with GameChanger Charity to deliver AR and VR-powered games and tools to help transform the hospital experience for seriously ill and isolated children at leading pediatric facilities on the GameChanger Private Network.
GameChanger Charity curates technology and content offerings for its GameChanger Private Network, a secure multi-channel, interactive platform. It equips the hospitals to deliver the latest video games, movies, VR and AR experiences, and other modes of distraction therapy for free.
The pandemic has significantly impacted the mental health of children isolated in treatment and long-term care. Nevertheless, emerging technologies such as augmented and virtual reality have proven to be highly beneficial in such circumstances when these patients cannot have a lot of visitors, friends, or classmates visit them.
Ten hospitals have been chosen to deploy the immersive technologies created by Foretell Reality to specifically improve mental wellbeing by mitigating pain, loneliness, and anxiety. Foretell’s VR platform takes the users to a different dimension to distract them away from the unwelcoming hospital environment.
Jim Carol, Co-Founder and CEO of GameChanger Charity, said, “Foretell’s technology offers advanced patient experiences that can have a positive impact on the overall wellbeing of the children we are working to help each day. The Foretell team shares our passion for relieving the pain and suffering of isolated kids and their families, and just as importantly, the caregivers who are working tirelessly on the front lines.”
“Our partnership with GameChanger Charity comes at a critical time for hospitals looking for innovative therapies for patients isolated by the pandemic,” said Dror Goldberg, GM, Foretell Reality and VP Product for The Glimpse Group. “This is exactly what our VR and AR experiences are designed to do.”
