We provide a number of technologies that are scientifically and clinically validated in the peer-reviewed literature. We work with clinicians from a variety of specialties, including anesthesiology, perioperative medicine, pain medicine, general surgery, ENT, urology, obstetrics and gynecology, gastroenterology, critical care, interventional radiology, orthopedic surgery, diagnostic radiology, neurology, dermatology, allergy, family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, hospital medicine, dentistry, and more.

Virtual Reality

Virtual reality (VR) has become a promising option for helping calm and distract patients during medical procedures. In fact, a growing body of research suggests that VR actually helps reduce fear, anxiety and pain. Our team members are among the very first to begin researching the impact of VR on anxiety levels, specifically in hospitalized pediatric patients.

Pain Rehabilitation VR

Virtual reality allows patients to be transported into an immersive environment through interactive games and passive experiences. We utilize virtual reality in the clinical setting to keep patients engaged in their physical rehabilitation journey. With knowledge of the patient’s goals in mind, we create a playlist of games to motivate targeted movement while tracking their progress through each virtual reality session.

BERT: Bedside Entertainment and Relaxation Theater

BERT, is a video projection unit that is mounted onto a child’s gurney, thus following the patient into the operating room. The large screen size allows children to watch a comforting movie to distract them during what is perhaps the most stressful part of the preoperative procedure: the moment they are separated from parents and wheeled away.

Additionally, using BERT as a non-medicinal anxiolytic reduces the amount of oral anxiety medications given to children. BERT has been shown to improve both patient and family satisfaction levels. While BERT has been primarily used to calm children before surgery, it has also been used in other areas of the hospital, such as for children about to receive radiation therapy or MRI. Recently, the use of the BERT project has even extended to hospitals as far as in Barcelona, Spain.

Augmented Reality

Augmented reality allows providers to seamlessly blend therapeutic interventions with the real world. Augmented reality helps to relax the user during routine procedures and guide physical rehabilitation. We offer kids fun educational experiences to help with IV placement, nasal endoscopy, and more. A provider may also enter the augmented reality with the patient in order to guide the direction of the game and motivate movement.
