IVR Simulations for lonely eldery people
In September 2017 Ipas started a feasibility study on the application of 3D simulations in the care for lonely elderly people. We investigate whether there is a market and a need for an innovative way of reducing feelings of loneliness and enhancing wellbeing. Our hypothesis is first of all that the experience of a warm virtual friend helps the elderly to feel less lonely. And secondly that the setting of the simulation will play a significant role in creating feelings of wellbeing. Experience so far shows that elderly people enjoy tremendously the opportunities that VR offers.
