Boston, MA-based XRHealth will be launching a new virtual reality telehealth clinic in Israel on November 1st, 2020. The VR telehealth clinic will treat patients for symptoms related to Stress & Anxiety, ADHD, Motor & Cognitive Rehabilitation, post-COVID-19, Parkinson’s, Brain Injury, and more.
Why does it matter?
Once launched, the clinic will provide patients with a VR headset at home to access different virtual treatment rooms with various therapeutic exercises. Patients will be paired with a licensed clinician who evaluates them, creates a treatment plan, monitors their progress, and adjusts the treatment plan based on the patients’ progress and actual outcomes. Patients can communicate with their clinicians and track their progress using the XRHealth mobile app.
The clinic will be powered by leading medical centers in Israel and around the world and employs licensed clinicians who are trained in VR treatment — including physical therapists, occupational therapists, psychologists, and more.
Also worth noting is that XRHealth’s medical applications are approved by the Ministry of Health and the treatments are reimbursable through insurance providers and HMOs, based on individual coverage.
On the record
“In the era of COVID-19, there’s an essential need to provide healthcare services remotely and VR technology enables us to offer a wide variety of telehealth treatments that far exceed a simple video call,” said Eran Orr, CEO of XRHealth. “Now, patients in Israel have access to the highest-quality healthcare treatments, all from the comfort of their homes.”
