What is the OmniVR

The OmniVR® is the world's first 3D Virtual Reality Augmented Therapy system designed specifically for aging adults and others with physical limitations. The technology is an important new tool for physical, occupational and speech therapists to help improve function, while making the therapy process more fun and rewarding for patients. Under the direction of a therapist, one or two patients at a time can use the OmniVR® to participate in a variety of therapeutic activities and exercises that are selected for the individual's physical challenge or condition. These exercises and activities have been developed around evidence-based literature addressing the techniques and objectives of accepted therapy practice.
