BOSTON, Sept. 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — XRHealth, the leader in extended reality therapeutic applications, announces that they received a patent to utilize approaches that incorporate biofeedback into their extended reality therapy. These novel approaches enable VR/AR therapy to address patient pain based on biofeedback such us heart rate variability, EEG, galvanic skin response, and other critical responses while patients are using the VR/AR devices. Solutions that incorporate biofeedback allow patient treatment to be customized according to their unique needs and better inform clinicians on how patients are responding to therapy.
XRHealth plans to incorporate their VR/AR therapy with the Apple Watch, specifically since the watch has advanced features including a medical grade, FDA-cleared electrocardiogram (EKG) that measures heartbeat. XRHealth will use the output measurements of the Apple Watch to detect pain, which will modify VR/AR therapy treatment for patients based on the pain that they feel during the sessions.
“The newly awarded patent reflects XRHealth’s commitment to creating the most sophisticated form of therapy that responds to patient physical needs in real-time,” said Eran Orr, CEO of XRHealth. “Virtual Reality therapy that incorporates biofeedback will enhance and personalize the patient experience and provide clinicians with critical insights.”
U.S. Patent No. 16/067,480, entitled “A Therapy and Physical Training Device,” was issued on September 15, 2020.
