DR.VR Junior
DR.VR Junior has been specifically designed for children in a healthcare setting. Using worldwide research and our extensive experience in user centric design, DR.VR Junior is a simple to use solution for delivering VR distraction therapy to children to reduce anxiety and pain during procedures.
A stay in the hospital can be a stressful and painful experience for a child. Children are generally apprehensive of unfamiliar environments and strange people, and even those children more familiar, through multiple hospital visits, can become fearful of an unknown procedure. A hospital can be a big scary place for children, something they don’t fully comprehend. They don’t understand why they are removed from their favourite places and people, and why they can’t participate in their favourite activities.

Children lack the mature defence mechanisms that adults have, and the confines of a hospital ward may be too restrictive for the free spirit of a child. All these factors make hospitalisation a stressful event for children.
A child’s illness can be a testing time for parents too, for the whole family in fact. Families are psychologically vulnerable after the hospitalisation of a child. The associated stress can manifest as symptoms of depression and anxiety in both parents and siblings.
Therefore, relieving distress in young patients, parents and siblings is an important part of an overall care plan. Not only does this deliver a direct benefit to the patient and their family, but it also positively impacts on staff.
Paediatrics is an area that offers tremendous opportunity for the application of VR with it’s immersive and encompassing make up. VR appeals directly to the imagination and inquisitive nature of children and has the power to enthral and engage children, teens and young adults. From their previously confining hospital environment children can explore coral reefs, walk with dinosaurs and fly through space; they can be back in their classroom or bedroom at home or see their favourite pet at play
