What were the key findings?
“After just two weeks using the Rendever platform consistently, residents’ perceived overall health improved significantly, and they also felt improvements in their social and physical well-being.
When compared to fellow residents who had been following the same programming on a flat screen TV, the group using Rendever’s virtual reality platform had a significant change in depression scores, and reportedly felt significantly more trusting following the two week period.”
