Pico headsets offer patients an easy to use VR setup that does not require additional equipment. The headsets are also designed for a variety of industries including healthcare, where cleanliness is a priority and includes replaceable PU face inserts that are easy to clean and hygienic.

Working with XRHealth is a great opportunity for us to do just that."

XRHealth is the only company offering "virtual clinics" that provides VR therapy and support groups to patients with a variety of conditions like anxiety, stroke rehabilitation, chronic pain, night sweats and neurological disorders.
"Our partnership with Pico demonstrates our commitment to providing patients and doctors the much-needed virtual reality telehealth services during the pandemic," says Eran Orr, CEO of XRHealth. "We are excited to offer the healthcare industry a new device that will enable us to serve patients around the world with virtual reality therapy on best-of-class headsets."
