VR Health Reference Model

The VR Health Reference Model forms the basis for an efficient and successful implementation of VR technology and software in health institutions across the BSR.

Within the scope of the “Baltic Game Industry -Empowering a Booster for Regional Development“(BGI) project, a major aim is to further investigate general framework conditions that have to be met, and provide recommendations, in order to aid the development and implementation of virtual reality (VR) applications in non-game sectors, such as therapeutical settings in a hospital.

In the ongoing BGI project, a VR application was developed and tested for usage in clinical (hospital) settings to gather experience with the development and its implementation as well as potential obstacles impeding successful usage. Every step of the project was exemplified by an application to treat alcohol use disorder: AlcAvoid.
