LAGUNA BEACH, Calif., April 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- "While kids are in the hospital, to have this escape from the day-to-day routine of taking vital signs, getting blood drawn, chemotherapy - it's such an amazing opportunity for them," said Dr. Mark Mogul, Pediatric Hematology and Oncology specialist at St. Joseph's Children's Hospital in Tampa, Florida during a recent interview on the television show Positively Tampa Bay.
Dr. Mogul was talking about the Infusionarium, an immersive virtual reality system designed for young patients receiving hours of chemotherapy infusion and other treatments. "Every month we go out and ask our patients, if you could heal anywhere in the universe, and there were absolutely no rules, what place would best promote your healing? " said Reimagine Well co-founder Roger Holzberg, a former award-winning Disney Imagineer.
Cancer treatment often leaves patients feeling depressed and anxious, which negatively impacts their road to recovery. Laguna Beach, California-based Reimagine Well, developer of the Infusionarium, is solving this problem by creating what the company calls immersive healing environments that enable patients to be treated in the place they believe will best promote their healing.
Dr. Mogul can barely contain his enthusiasm about what many consider to be a game changer. "This Infusionarium… we're excited for the kids, but the docs are just as excited for the other docs. It's an incredible experience!"
Reimagine Well provides a proprietary platform and programs that are designed for chemotherapy, dialysis, physical therapy, assisted living, radiation therapy and more; and has compiled an extensive library of patient-requested immersive healing experiences and disease specific 'Survival Guides' hosted by clinicians, scientists, and medical experts. Each guide provides segmented instructions and resources for patients designed to educate and support them through the patient journey.
