Embodied Brain Training in VR

Game Happens 2019 – Conference
Friday 8 November, Afternoon Sessions

Virtuleap’s Enhance VR brain training app offers a daily cognitive workout of short, intense and fun games scientifically designed to help increase attention and concentration levels. Additionally, we have composed music tracks that affect the attentional networks of the brain by applying the technique of “phase locking”, which serves to induce increased levels of focus during app exposure. Lastly, we have developed an accompanying client dashboard that allows caregivers, companies, and organizations to monitor and manage the performance of their users. One long-term use case will be in our working closely with clinical organizations in order to apply our tech as a potential new source of “digital markers” for indicating the early detection of conditions such as Alzheimer’s and Dementia.
