XRHealth collaborates with Magic Leap to bring Augmented Reality to healthcare

In Augmented Reality News

September 9, 2019 – XRHealth, a provider of extended reality and therapeutic AR and VR applications for the medical industry, announced last week its collaboration with Magic Leap, aimed at bringing XRHealth health and wellness solutions to Magic Leap devices.

XRHealth and Magic Leap are collaborating to bring XRHealth health and wellness solutions to medical practitioners. The ARHealth therapeutic platform will deliver spatial computing applications for rehabilitation, cognitive training, psychological assessment and distraction from pain. The use of AR as a non-invasive medical tool helps to enhance the treatment experience for patients, allowing them to analyze and quantify their own results and track progress over time.

For doctors, nurses, and other healthcare providers, the ARHealth platform will provide tracking tools and data analysis for use in hospitals and medical facilities. According to XRHealth, the comprehensive solution will leverage artificial intelligence and cloud-computing algorithms to upload quantified information to a web-based data portal in real time. External tablet control will enable medical professionals to 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 CEO Eran Orr said: “We’re excited to bring our solutions to the augmented reality space via our collaboration with Magic Leap”. Orr added, “The ARHealth platform will provide patients and doctors with an unprecedented treatment experience, enabling them deeper insight into their healthcare results.”

XRHealth is a medical device company with FDA-registered products.
