Meet the Labsters: using virtuel reality to live a healthy life in the real reality
Åte VR is currently working on a VR physiotherapy platform, Gonio VR, which they have showcased in Go’ Morgen Danmark on TV 2 and has been nominated for a Danish Design Award in the category ‘Healthy Life’. We asked Ege Jespersen, CEO and Creative Director of Åte VR a few questions about Gonio VR og their hopes for the future.
What is your background?
I have an academic background in Digital Design at Aarhus University, and a work related background in farming, the royal army, and producing Virtual Reality Software.
What are you currently working on?
For the last two years Åte VR has been working on a VR physiotherapy platform, where citizens will be able to rehabilitate joint pain and decreased Range of Motion (ROM) in fun and mot
ivating VR activities. Next to that we’re building a mobile VR platform for sensory (audio and visual) stimuli of citizens that have concentration difficulties or need a relaxing learning experience, that isolates him/her from outside distractions.
What is the aim of your products?
Åte VR’s vision and aim is to create meaningful, fun, and user-friendly VR solutions, that help citizens become more independent with diagnosing and treating their illness.
What are your hopes and dreams for the future?
My hope is that we, within the next 50 years, will reach a point where all citizens will be empowered to effectively and fun do their own diagnosing and treatment through VR technology, so they can spend more time leading a healthy life in the real world.
