Disabled residents stop rocking and buckle up in VR —
In 2017, residential and activity center Sydbo and residential offer Ryttervej were introduced to the Take Care VR platform.
The hope was that residents would relax more in VR or otherwise modify behavior in VR.
A hope that was fulfilled and they continue to use the platform.
Changed behavior –
Some residents relax in their muscles and others generally just get more relaxed. There are also those who become more talkative and talk about what they experience in the headset.
When the staff uses the platform, they see that the residents relaxes more and are less tense. They are generally calmer.
It`s easy –
”The control and features work really well. It´s easy to use.”
