The Challenge

In some instances, psychological challenges make it impossible for individuals to attend therapy in-person, thus limiting their availability to receive quality care. Children, in particular, have a natural curiosity of and inclination towards new technologies. However, until now, remote care options have been limited

The Solution

Theraport allows for "holoporting" the therapist to the patient, regardless of location, for a remote-care session. In addition, the use of avatars and games helps to motivate patients to remain increasingly engaged in their own care.

"I believe that we can use mixed reality to reach the unreachable children."
