All VIRTU-WELL Technicians are trained to focus on the preferences unique to each Individual. This empowers the user to customize each Virtual Reality experience in the most beneficial way.
At the end of each session, we aim to improve and expand our collection of VR experiences by gathering feedback and learning as much as we can about the individual so we can come prepared for our next visit. With an endless collection of curated experiences to choose from, users have a unique opportunity to relive their past, escape from their day-to-day routine, and gain exposure to the world in a way not otherwise possible.
Our Approach is unique. While users have the opportunity to express their interests to us directly, we also work closely with therapists, family members, and/or caregivers to assess goals and implement interventions as part of an interdisciplinary plan of care. This line of communication is important, especially in cases where a person may be unable to express themselves due to a physical or cognitive barrier.
Whether we are conducting a 1-on-1 home visit or a leading a group session in the skilled setting, our approach is centered on the individual. Each situation may be different, but our goal always remains the same: to deliver an unforgettable experience and make a lasting impact. Sessions can be conducted in a few ways.
For group sessions, two onsite technicians are standard. One works largely behind the scenes, operating the equipment while communicating with the user via microphone. The other assists with explaining how the equipment works, helps to put on the headset and remove it at the end of each session, and ensure that each user is comfortable throughout.
Group Sessions are ideal for the skilled setting. Our system configuration allows us to project a mirror image of what is being experienced by the user on a television monitor on site. By allowing the group to see what is being experienced by the primary user, we promote a group experience that limits the sometimes isolating nature of VR. In addition to providing entertainment and driving conversation, giving onlookers a glimpse into what is being seen in the headset alleviates potential reservations and sparks interest.
What is a deeply personal journey into a new world for the user, is also a community experience that stimulates reminiscing and necessitates a fresh cup of coffee.

For individuals who may be aging in place, immobile, or simply prefer a higher degree of privacy, we offer hourly sessions conducted on a 1-to-1 basis in the home.
Prior to each session, VIRTU-WELL will provide an interest assessment form to the user, a family member, or a caregiver. This form contains a detailed list of interest areas that can be checked to assist our technicians in developing an appropriate and customized experience-set for the user based on his or her preferences. This form also allows us to assess the user’s mobility and activity level, as well as, any health concerns we should be aware of. This pre-screening assessment enables our technicians to arrive for the scheduled session with everything needed for an unforgettable and highly therapeutic experience.
We structure our 1-to-1 Sessions to last around an hour with periodic breaks after 10-15 minutes of continuous use to prevent any adverse effects.
