The gateway to the healthcare metaverse, XRHealth, has announced the availability of its virtual and augmented reality therapy for autism patients in the United States. The ASD VR therapy was available only to patients in Australia, helping them combat issues such as attention, inhibition, memory, mobility/coordination, frustration tolerance, anxiety, and stress.
XRHealth’s platform uses unique data insights provided by the closed-loop VR technology to measure the progress achieved through therapy.
The XRHealth clinicians will deploy the FDA registered applications to assist ASD patients with a holistic, multidisciplinary treatment, comprising physical therapy, occupational therapy, and behavioral health. The platform will provide both therapists and patients with valuable insights and progress reports to track and enhance the treatment. Moreover, patients can also join a support group inside virtual reality to connect with other ASD patients.
XRHealth services and technology are a brilliant solution for the many challenges faced by ASD patients and their close ones. For instance, it is often challenging to get ASD patients in the car to take them for the therapy due to a resistance to the therapy itself or a change in their routine. Instead, XRHealth offers an easy, fun, and engaging method for ASD patients to undergo the requisite therapy in the comfort of their homes. It eliminates the trouble the patients and families have to go through traveling to doctors’ offices.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 2.21% or 5,437,988 adults have ASD in the United States. Most of the cases are diagnosed before the age of 3, leading to challenges in communicating and interacting with others, limited interests, and repetitive behavior.
“XRHealth is providing a virtual environment similar to gaming for patients with ASD, which is tailored perfectly for children who want to be engaged in a way that is familiar, ” said Eran Orr, Founder & CEO of XRHealth. “Because of the unique and fun environment, patients are more likely to comply with treatment plans since they enjoy the process.”
