VRHealth creates "Virtual Treatment & Exercise Rooms" by developing breakthrough medical and wellness applications using Virtual Reality (VR) to deliver an enhanced experience and real-time data analytics, for use in clinics and at home, where users can analyze and quantify performance through a digital experience. VRHealth is the first certified virtual reality medical company in the world and all its medical products are FDA authorized.

iMotions: Given the rise of VR/AR technology in multiple industries including gaming, research, therapy, and military applications, there is a growing need to measure our physiological reactions to immersive virtual environments. Biometric sensors such as eye tracking, electromyography (EMG), electroencephalography (EEG) and galvanic skin response (GSR) are some of the most popular and cost-effective ways to evaluate the human experience in VR, but synchronization and interpretation of these sensors can be difficult and time-consuming. iMotions simplifies multimodal biometric research by providing software, hardware, and services to 700+ academic and commercial clients worldwide. Notable clients using iMotions with VR include Arizona State University, Purdue University, and Isobar.
