Exciting News for Spirit VR
We are over the moon to announce that we were successful in our latest submission to Innovate UK!
We submitted SpiritVR, our in-house VR app, to help with mental wellbeing and mindfulness to the competition “Mindset extended reality (XR) for digital mental health: strand 1”
The competition outline was to develop digital therapeutic Extended Reality (XR) solutions to provide mental health care services.
We plan to use this funding and amazing opportunity to help build Spirit VR further, researching its effectiveness in mental wellbeing and reporting our findings.
This funding will allow us to extend our prototype further. Working with experts in the mental health, wellbeing and academic industries.
It will also allow us to add a new 6 week course, called Journey. This will slowly introduce the user into mindfulness, teaching them how to build upon the knowledge they acquire each week and use it in their everyday lives.
All insights and knowledge gained will be shared with the local community and used to improve the software further.
If you are interested in learning more about using VR for mental wellbeing, or have any ideas and insights that you think could make a difference, please feel free to drop us a message here.
