The Guardian have featured Oxford VR and the fear of heights programe.
The online article, released on 7 October 2017, talks the reader through Leslie Channell’s experience of the fear of heights treatment.
“Chann has to use a lever to push himself on to a small platform towards the cat. He is a stocky, tough-looking man in his late 50s. But he’s not looking tough any more. His voice is rising, and he’s shaking. He edges forward along the virtual branch. In real life, his feet also move gingerly – then come to a sudden stop. His breathing becomes louder and more staccato”.
“With VR, you can get people to try stuff they haven’t done for years, then they realise they can do it in the real world.”
Daniel Freeman – Founder and Chief Clinical Officer
