The AtOne app uses virtual reality to provide immersive guided meditations. The simulations include relaxing music, calming scenes, and digital animations to help the user relax.
Virtual reality (VR) is quickly growing in popularity in the Healthtech space. It has been used for digital sedation, health education, to aid in rehabilitation, and much more. Creating immersive digital programs can greatly reduce the cost of treatments and training that otherwise would require sessions with practitioners.
VR is also being used to address the growing frequency of chronic stress and mental illnesses. It makes treatment more accessible and affordable for many, and could even provide better results than traditional techniques thanks to the immersive simulations.
The AtOne app is an innovative Australian startup using virtual reality for mindfulness and meditation to reduce anxiety. Users follow guided meditations that last between 2 and 25 minutes of virtual or real-life scenes.
The program uses various digitally-created images in the scene to give the user a focal point that can help users go deeper into their meditation and mindfulness. When used with the Rhythm Heart Rate Band, biofeedback is transmitted to the program’s dashboard to help users track their progress over time. Meditation has been proven to greatly reduce stress and anxiety, which in turn can improve sleep, focus, mood, and more.
