Exploration is a way to distract an older patient as opposed to gaming. We have found that patients aged 16+ are more receptive to exploration as opposed to gaming when faced with a situation like a visit to the doctor.

The fact that they are more aware of their environment makes it more of a challenge to impress them by gaming alone. An example of content would be a module in Brush Hero called “Cheops”. This is a fully immersive VR experience designed to take the patient on a ride on the Soyuz space craft and watch the Cheops satellite deploy. We then explore the planets in our solar system and finally beyond where we explore imaginary exoplanets..

We explore the solar system using the hand controller or alternatively, we can walk around in a 10 square meter area and interact with the planets.
