Meta Quest 2 Comfort Vue™ System Can be Optimized as a Virtual Travel Platform to Reduce Elderly Social Isolation

Meta Quest 2 Comfort Vue™ System Can be Optimized as a Virtual Travel Platform to Reduce Elderly Social Isolation

PR Newswire

VRComfort Labs, a new business unit of CMTLabs, Inc. stated the VR Comfort Vue™ system developed for the Meta Quest 2, can be optimized as a virtual travel platform to reduce loneliness and social isolation experienced by millions of older adults.

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., May 30, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- VRComfort Labs stated the most vulnerable are those who are over the age 65, live alone, in nursing homes or assisted living centers. They may only interact socially with a couple other residents, care takers and an occasional visiting family member. For single seniors and couples who live in retirement communities and may not be as lonely, the virtual travel platform can still provide emotional and mental benefits.

VRComfort Labs further stated there are companies such as MyndVR, Rendever, SilVR Adventures, VivaVita, and Viarama, who address similar issues and have some decent apps and content. VRComfort Labs reviewed current solutions and believes although content can be good, the delivery system is not. Other than MyndVR ,which utilizes HTC Vive Flow glasses, solution providers require the user to strap on a full-size VR headset. One of the biggest complaints about VR headset engagement is the discomfort caused by pressure on the face. For a senior citizen user, the physical discomfort can be even worse.

The VR Comfort Vue™ platform eliminates head motion sickness, head strap discomfort and allows quick and easy headset entry, exit, and re-entry, for taking take momentary immersion breaks. All three are vital functionality features for a senior citizen user to have an enjoyable virtual travel experience.

No other current VR/Metaverse platform can provide the functionality features which make the Comfort Vue™ stationary boundary system an ideal virtual travel platform for older adults. Alternative solutions can involve more expensive VR headsets, yearly subscriptions, and require a health care "tour guide." The VR Comfort Vue™ platform can be adapted to accept other headsets, but is plug and play with Quest 2 which can use the $9.99 world travel Wander app
