Virtual Reality therapy to combat the fear of speaking in public and to improve communication skills.

The fear of speaking in public has become one of the most common problems in today’s society; in current diagnostic systems, the fear of speaking in public is classified as a social phobia.

The development of an immersive artificial environment makes it possible to provide expositive therapies that do not involve any risk to the patient’s health and avoids the need for the patient to attend the therapist’s consultation or outpatient clinic in person.

The most common fears when speaking at an audience are:

  • fear of being watched
  • fear of criticism
  • fear of feeling anxious
  • fear of negative feedback
  • fear of not knowing how to behave properly

Virtual space in which different social interactions can be represented so as to learn how to carry out more effective, creative and efficient presentations.

Main types of treatments:

  • Phobia Treatment
  • Attention deficit Disorder Treatment
  • Mental Health Treatment
  • Apps for the impaired
  • Meditation and stress management
  • Pain management
  • Brain Injury Assessment and Rehabilitations
