What is

RECREATIONAL

THERAPY?

A systematic process that utilizes  activity-based interventions to address the assessed needs of individuals with illnesses and/or disabling conditions, as a means to psychological and physical health, recovery and well-being.

Recreational therapy can be administered through a variety of techniques, but those with limited access to the outside world cannot fully benefit from such activities. Some contemporary technologies (i.e. smartphones) may solve this problem to some extent, but Virtual Reality is the most effective solution.

VR breaks down barriers that prevent older adults from participating in therapeutic recreational activities and provides highly immersive experiences that match real-life.

Just seeing it in my mom that when she does it, she is happy and excited. She likes it. She likes going places, so she gets to do that, and it's a cool thing

We thought [MyndVR] would be a good way for our residents to get out and to travel and explore without jeopardizing their safety...and they love it.

There were buildings, fountains, and tourists walked in front of me and I could almost touch them, it’s great and it’s like I was there.

Older age comes with increased barriers that make it difficult for seniors to fully participate within their communities, but VR provides the resources to partake in recreational therapy without needing the physical or cognitive ability that is often required.
