"XR for Kids with Cancer"
18Loop's mission is to advocate for the benefits of Extended Reality (AR/MR/VR) in pediatric cancer recovery, to deploy XR to every child with cancer, and to help our kids create, learn and grow in the metaverse. We are not a medical solution, but our technology will drive our progress toward strengthening the fight against childhood cancer. Please join us in supporting our community.
18Loop and the American Childhood Cancer Organization (ACCO) have been working collaboratively since 2020 to deploy Virtual Reality (VR) headsets to kids with cancer. Today, over 100 ACCO children have received our headsets and our message has been amplified on television and the internet.
With the ACCO, 18Loop is proving the efficacy of VR for mood enhancement for cancer kids and families. 85% of our teens report better mood after VR immersion. VR is a proven family intervention, with the headsets having a wholistic impact on cancer families. We have seen the benefit for siblings and parents.
18Loop is also currently supplying technology for VR research in Michigan at MW4K. That work is being done with VR for Health and the XR Impact Network. We are excited to participate in this project! We'd love for you to read more about it.
"...Virtual Reality offers an answer to educational and mood issues that only immersion can deliver. 18Loop will deploy VR to children 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."
Please fill out our contact form. We are interested in your feedback and we’d like to keep you up to date on the progress of our mission. We are interested in inquiries from medical personnel and those with technology expertise in the area of Virtual Reality. For parents involved in 18Loop programs, head to Parent/Tech.
