How it works

Virtual reality can transform the way society tackles mental health problems

How it works

Automated therapy

OVR’s therapy is automated via an integrated virtual coach. Adherence to evidence-based treatment protocols is combined with genuine ease of use.

Experience on demand

In VR we can create powerful simulations of the scenarios in which psychological difficulties occur, providing a safe space to try new behaviour

Learning that translates

Despite a simulated environment, the mind and body behave as if it were real. This means that the lessons learned in VR transfer into everyday life

The body of evidence

Oxford University

For nearly 20 years, Professor of Clinical Psychology and NIHR Research Professor at Oxford University and OVR’s Chief Clinical Officer, Daniel Freeman has been pioneering the use of VR to understand and treat mental health conditions

Published papers

Both a published analysis of over 285 clinical studies, and Oxford VR’s own landmark proof of principle trial from August 2018 demonstrate VR is a proven modality for delivering rapid, lasting improvement for patients

Current research

Chief amongst the projects underway is OVR’s participation in the gameChange project, the largest NHS-funded initiative of its kind examining the role of VR therapy in helping patients with psychosis
