Company description
Virtual Reality Therapy (VRT) allows the immersion of an individual into an environment that would otherwise be unsafe, unwise, or impractical for treatment of mental health issues. We have created an effective protocol with level gradations and challenges that progress from cartoony to realistic imagery with safeguards to escape to custom calming worlds allows for gradual engagement at the user’s discretion. This new hybrid method is known as Deferred Individualized Gradated Immersion Therapy (D.I.G.I.T.). Spearheaded by creators and developers, Timothy and Alexandria Porter, they are supported by the medical experience and vision of Army veteran and occupational therapist, Erik Johnson, and attorney, Adrian Resendez, who is active in the minority community. The commercial availability and affordability of virtual reality gear now allows for VRT to be accessed worldwide with or without the help of a medical professional. Our product will be platform agnostic to break down some of the barriers of accessibility. We want to shatter the stigma and negativity associated with seeking treatment for mental health issues. To meet our goals of outreach we plan to provide headsets and content to those more vulnerable populations like the homeless, incarcerated, underprivileged, or impoverished.
