Virtualization (Virtual Reality Therapeutic Immersive Experience for Seniors)
Studies show that virtual reality can have a positive effect on both the communication ability and quality of life of seniors. It’s no surprise that augmented reality companies are cropping up to provide services to assisted living centers and other facilities.
Ebony-VR is one of these companies, but we stand apart in the individualized experience we provide to each and every senior we work with.
What Is Virtual Reality?
In it’s simplest form, virtual reality (VR) involves tricking the mind into thinking it’s in a different, virtual environment. One second a user is in the middle of a Cirque de Soleil concert, and the next they’re skydiving 10,000 feet above the Earth!
Participants wear a headset that uses motion sensors to accurately simulate head movement within a virtual landscape. Combine the visual effects with sound, and you’re well on your way to simulating a realistic environment.

Augmented Reality (AR) vs. Virtual Reality (VR)
Augmented reality is a version of mediated reality wherein one’s perception of reality is modified by a computer. In other words, this technology involves enhancing one’s current understanding of reality. By contrast, virtual reality replaces the real world with a simulated one. With the help of advanced AR technology, information about the surrounding real world of the user becomes interactive and capable of manipulation.
What Is Mixed Reality (MR)?
Mixed or hybrid reality combines the best aspects of both virtual reality and augmented reality. It also refers to the spectrum of situations that span the continuum between virtual reality and actual reality. In mixed reality environments, users seamlessly navigate through both the real and virtual world at the same time. Instead of residing in an entirely virtual space, users can interact with virtual objects anchored in their space.
