Since 2020, the Korean company has been developing VR technology-based metal healthcare solution to overcome several inconveniences in general offline based mental care; the negative social awareness of mental illness, compulsory face-to-face counseling and drug therapy, and high consultation fees for long term therapy.
This innovative solution covers various mental disorders such as PTSD (posttraumatic stress disorder), phobia, depression, dementia and other cognitive disorders. The contents have been developed based on advices from psychiatrists and related experts, and are compatible with HMDs (Head Mount Displays), mobiles, and PCs. Another innovative feature is that wearable monitoring sensor made of graphene fiber is applied to automatic VR content matching system, so the user’s physical and physiological data is tracked to match appropriate VR contents automatically. It analyzes sensor extraction data to control the intensity of fear exposure pertinent to user’s condition. This helps users to self-directed, non-face-to-face psychological treatment by automating exposure intensity control.
The Korean company is looking for partners to examine and commercialize its metal healthcare solution together under technical cooperation agreement and to upgrade the system and develop contents for other potential mental healthcare application.
