What if virtual reality allowed real well-being? Lille-based company My Cyber Royaume designed a whole series of innovative virtual reality programs for well-being. Designed with the help of therapists, the Good Cells program offers several virtual trips to the beach, the mountains and the countryside. A total immersion with virtual reality helmet, touch gloves, controllers, in a soothing universe. “A person in a wheelchair can suddenly walk, pick up objects, interact, talk,” explains Caroll Duthérage, innovative director. We tested the program at the Ehpad in Dushy-les-Mines. The residents found it very relaxing, smiling again, it brought back memories of travels to others. We also offer educational workshops with musical exercises, reflexes, etc., always in virtual mode, particularly appreciated to awaken and maintain sleeping sensations or abilities in some elderly people. Even traditional companies (Sodexo, Deloitte, etc.) use these virtual reality tools to offer relaxation or prevention workshops to their employees.
