"VR for Kids with Cancer"
18Loop's mission is to advocate for the benefits of Virtual Reality (VR) in pediatric cancer recovery, to deploy VR to every child with cancer, and to conduct scientific research to support the use of VR Stress Management in the fight against the disease. We are not a medical solution, but our technology will drive our progress toward helping our kids tolerate treatment, recover and thrive.
18Loop and the American Childhood Cancer Organization (ACCO) have launched a Joint Experimental Intervention Research Study (JEIRS). With the ACCO, 18Loop is proving the efficacy of Virtual Reality (VR) for mood enhancement for cancer kids and families. 91% of our kids report better mood after VR immersion.
Servier Pharmaceuticals is the main funder of the JEIRS study. Servier's participation complements our mission as they are heavily involved in the fight against pediatric cancer. 18Loop is grateful to join the family of companies supported by Servier.
18Loop is deploying Tripp virtual environments for JEIRS. Based on scientific research, Tripp has developed a VR Stress Management solution that uses Virtual Reality to assist with pain management, relaxation and deepens a connection to self. Pictured is 18Loop kid Molly.
"...Virtual Reality offers an answer to pain and mood issues that only immersion can deliver. 18Loop will deploy VR to kids with cancer that will provide them with a respite from treatment and help them to recover and thrive. The technology is getting better and we must leverage it now for our kids and their families."
