VR Project Findings Presentation

VR Project Findings Presentation

On September 22nd, the Virtual Reality (VR) Team went to one of our long-term care sites to present their research dissemination from summer focus groups. They brought IDEA Lab swag and boba, and had a very engaging session talking about the project with staff!

Through the focus group sessions they found four main positive themes of usage:

  • Virtual outdoor experiences
  • Promoting social and physical engagement
  • Reminiscence
  • Virtual pet and music therapy

They also found three main considerations:

  • Safety
  • Resident suitability
  • Resources needed

All of these findings came directly from staff and will help greatly inform their research!
