GLEN ELLYN, Ill., April 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Cubicle Ninjas' relaxing virtual reality (VR) application for the Oculus Rift, Guided Meditation VR allows patients to experience an exotic vacation, wherever and whenever they choose. The Beta demo app has surpassed 25,000 downloads and is already helping improve the overall wellbeing of people's lives.
The Boston Globe recently investigated the use of virtual reality as a healing device, highlighting Guided Meditation VR as a market pioneer. The article shared that VR therapy has significant benefits in treating post-traumatic stress disorders, phobias, and anxiety disorders by transporting patients to various simulated environments.
As the technology evolves, the potential to utilize VR for broader patient care in today's healthcare settings is endless. Integrating VR into healthcare facilities will add new dimensions to the patient experience and care delivery. Facilities can use VR with patients to:
- Reduce stress and anxiety before procedures
- Reduce pain during the healing process
- Reduce boredom of being hospitalized
Guided Meditation VR transports the patient to a location of their choice to relax and find happiness in their day. Patients can embrace the sun on a peaceful beach, breathe out worries in a forest in the soothing rain, calm their soul in an ancient Japanese dojo, or stare down into a canyon born from millennia of change.
"We are excited to create VR experiences that make people happier and positively impact their daily lives," states Josh Farkas, CEO of Cubicle Ninjas. "Guided Meditation VR is a powerful tool for healthcare facilities to use as one component of their patient care model. Happier patients are known to heal faster, less likely to be readmitted, and more satisfied."
Guided Meditation VR will be exhibiting at HIMSS15 – April 13-15 in Chicago, IL. Healthcare facilities looking to enhance their patient experience are encouraged to visit the company's booth in the Innovation Pavilion, HX360 area.
