XRHealth is collaborating with Magic Leap to bring augmented reality (AR) technology to the healthcare market by delivering remote monitoring and data analytics to clinicians and patients.
Israeli firm XRHealth provides extended reality and therapeutic AR and VR applications for the medical industry. Through the collaboration, it will bring XRHealth health and wellness products to Magic Leap devices. Magic Leap is a Florida-based start-up specialising in AR and computer vision.
XRHealth’s ARHealth therapeutic platform can deliver spatial computing applications for rehabilitation, cognitive training, psychological assessment and distraction from pain. These non-invasive medical tools enhance the treatment experience for patients, allowing them to analyse and quantify their own results and track their progress over time.
For doctors, nurses and other healthcare providers, the platform provides accurate tracking tools and data analysis for use in hospitals and medical facilities. It leverages artificial intelligence (AI) and cloud-computing algorithms to upload quantified information to a web-based data portal in real time.
External tablet control lets medical professionals control their patient's session, from setup of session characteristics to choosing content, duration and more. For remote monitoring, the system will generate a detailed report at the end of every session, allowing adjustment of the patient's AR experience, as needed.
XRHealth is a medical device company with FDA-registered products.
"We're excited to bring our solutions to the augmented reality space via our collaboration with Magic Leap," said XRHealth CEO Eran Orr. "The ARHealth platform will provide patients and doctors with an unprecedented treatment experience, enabling them deeper insight into their healthcare results."
XRHealth, formerly known as VRHealth, specialises in extended reality and therapeutic applications providing VR and AR for the medical industry. It is the first certified extended-reality medical company; its medical applications are FDA and CE tegistered.
The firm’s healthcare technology helps clinicians manage their patients' care via extended reality technology and data analysis. The platforms collect and examine user data through AI and cloud-computing algorithms to deliver data analytics in real time, consistently enabling healthcare providers to enhance their users' and payers' healthcare experiences.
The company offers various patent-pending technologies for rehabilitation services, cognitive assessment and training, and pain management. It works with several US healthcare providers, hospitals and rehabilitation centres. Founded in 2016, XRHealth is headquartered in Israel and Boston, Massachusetts.
