VirtualMind provides VR tools to help diagnose and treat cognitive conditions like Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). The VirtualMind solution combines cognitive assessment, eye-tracking, and balance testing to provide new information about the nature of brain injury and potential treatment options. Review the VirtualMind FAQ below for more information.
About the VirtualMind VR platform.
Current cognitive assessment is not effective enough in its diagnosis of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and other types of cognitive impairment. Leveraging the advantages of virtual reality (VR), VirtualMind seeks to provide better tools for diagnosing and treating such injuries.
Though our primary focus is on now improving the diagnosis of TBI using virtual reality, we are also beginning research into how VirtualMind may help diagnose other cognitive conditions, including PTSD. Please contact us directly for more information.
Yes, our research is now focusing on how VR might be used to better treat TBI and other cognitive conditions. Please contact us directly for more information.
VirtualMind is currently available as a SteamVR application for the HTC Vive. We provide integrated eye-tracking modules for the Vive to be used in conjunction with the VirtualMind application. We are also testing VirtualMind with alterntive HMDs like the Oculus Rift and Windows Mixed Reality headsets.
As part of its testing, VirtualMind assesses a subject's reaction time, working memory, balance, eye movement, and executive function.
VirtualMind provides assessment data that can assist in the diagnosis of TBI and other conditions. VirtualMind is not a stand-alone diagnostic for TBI or any other cognitive condition.
VirtualMind is now seeking pilot sites to help test our VR tests and gather necessary subject data. Please click Research Opportunities at the top of this page for more information.
