Our research has shown that Virry VR can improve the quality of life of people with dementia, influencing their mood, arousing interest in the new, re-orientating their entire cognitive system with knowledge, whilst also having an immediate positive impact on an individual’s wellbeing, setting a positive emotional scene that enables a different attitude to life.

We also conducted a study of the effectiveness of Virry technology for a short conscious break in the headquarters of HeadHunter Group (HH.ru), which measured heart rate variability to demonstrate a significant increase in the activation of the parasympathetic link of the autonomic nervous system. In previous studies of the effectiveness of a conscious break for staff using Virry. Life VR technology in the top senior care home in Russia, the head office of Sberbank and in the IT company Loyalty Factory, data was obtained on the positive impact of the technology on the psycho-emotional state of employees, which showed increasing performance associated with mood and state of mind, as well as a decrease in the level of depression and the coefficient of emotional burnout.

In addition, the application of our content in treating the following conditions is in development:

Treatment of ADHD symptoms in children and teenagers.
Pain reduction for patients/ people living with chronic pain.
Virry VR is specifically designed to be easily and intuitively used by all ages
Stress and the immune system
Modern medical practice has come to understand the closely linked relationship between the mind and body, with emotional stress and depression now known to be a connecting factor in a wide range of maladies.

When stressed the mind suppresses the immune system, increasing susceptibility to flu viruses and other illnesses.

Whilst we can’t avoid all sources of stress in our day to day lives, we can use relaxation techniques, such as meditation and breath control exercises, to help control our stress levels which in turn helps our immune system.

Virry VR uses nature therapy and mindfulness techniques to reduce stress and anxiety. We encourage users to take a daily break and focus on their mental and physical wellbeing in a way that is enjoyable and easily accessible.
Mood tracker
Virry VR has an inbuilt mood tracker which you are asked to answer at the beginning and end of your session.

This data is accumulated so that you are able to see your emotional states over a period of time.

Regularly tracking your mood will bring a new habit of emotional self-assessment and helps with self-regulation. The better feelings are understood, the easier it is to reflect on them and regulate them.

Data from the mood tracker is saved on your headset and not collected or shared anywhere else. Please see our privacy policy for further details.

What is nature therapy VR?
Benefits of meditation
Meditation can give you a sense of calm, peace and balance that benefits both your emotional wellbeing and your overall health.
Practicing meditation and mindfulness can be especially helpful for people who have medical conditions that may be worsened by stress.

Virry Happy: mindfulness in nature VR is a guided meditation tool, a method in which you are guided by imagery and sound to help you feel relaxed and calm.

Current research indicates that practicing mindfulness meditation leads to increased telomerase activity and telomere length — structures that are located at the extreme ends of chromosomes, which are considered indicators of biological age. By reducing cognitive stress and stress arousal and increasing positive states of mind, practising mindfulness meditation may promote telomere maintenance, which is linked to cell longevity and therefore human longevity.
Benefits of nature therapy
Studies show that exposure to green environments, nature and wildlife can hugely improve psychological wellbeing, with research demonstrating that hospital patients who are exposed to green spaces have been shown to recover more quickly and to need fewer painkillers than similar patients who aren’t exposed to green spaces.

An experiment carried out in 2015 studied our emotional response to nature, which proved that "microbreaks" in nature (looking at a green roof in a city, rather than bare concrete) improve our cognitive functioning. It demonstrated that our eyes respond to fractal patterns in nature because their internal physical structure is made up of similar patterns. They also found that concentration and focus could be improved in just 40 second breaks spent looking at nature. This finding is significant with most of our population now living and working in cities, as it shows we should be thinking about easily accessible green spaces and shorter breaks.

One relatively affordable and convenient way for healthcare providers and businesses to provide access to nature is 360-degree videos in virtual reality.

paper published by the University of Illinois in 2020, looked at whether simulated nature can support mental health by comparing short, single-doses of non-interactive 360-degree nature videos in virtual reality with the outdoors. They found that six minutes of nature exposure in mobile VR headsets produced similar effects as six minutes of outdoor nature exposure, with exposure in both conditions resulting in a pattern of increasing physiological arousal associated with higher positive affect. In conclusion, short and isolated exposure to a non-interactive 360-degree video of nature can provide an emotionally beneficial alternative to visits to outdoor nature for those might not otherwise access restorative outdoor environments.
Virry VR is designed to help two basic emotional needs: to feel more energised or to feel less stressed. The selection of interactive experiences with animals, where you will be asked to perform some action about the animal: feeding, bathing, calling, etc., can help improve your mood in the following specific ways:

— Big mammals: when you need to feel energised
— Small mammals: when you want to have fun and play
— Herbivores: when you want to feel comforted
— Carnivores: when you want an exciting adrenaline boost

Or you can select a non-interactive experience, immersing yourself in one of several relaxing environments to practice breathing exercises.

Testimonials
Prof. Jeremy Bailenson
Stanford VR Lab
I have seen thousands of spherical videos, and the footage from Virry VR is the most stunning nature scenes I have ever seen in any medium. Seeing a big Rhino, in its natural home, from the perspective of a mud puddle inches away, or having a Lion literally lick my face to test if I am edible, was among the coolest things I have done in VR to date. I predict this project will be a huge success in motivating people to learn more about nature and ecosystems.
Alexei Sidnev
CEO of Senior Group, a high quality senior care provider in Russia
We face the problem of burn-out with our carers every day and have tried different technologies to help them recover. So far it seems that Virry.Life is the most efficient solution. I can see our employees enjoying the VR experiences and becoming calmer and relaxed. The Virry effect is even more amazing with our patients, especially those with dementia. Putting on the VR-glasses they suddenly turn into children and look so happy! They really enjoy the experience and react very vividly.

Intimate communication with animals allowed me to drop the barrier of alienation. Facts about endangered species and contemplation of wildlife make you empathic to those who are now in a difficult situation. Including overloaded colleagues and subordinates with a close deadline.
Senior Nurse
at Malakhovka senior care home
One of the employees (my assistant) came in well-rested, and started sharing that she’d been watching animals. Frankly, I only remembered the one thing that mattered to me: "My blood pressure went down." I was skeptical about it, but then several more people came and also claimed that their blood pressure had gone down. My life is very hectic, so my blood pressure jumps all over the place. That same day, I had high blood pressure all because of stress at work. Naturally, I decided to test this pressure-lowering effect on myself, and to my amazement, it worked! We checked my blood pressure before and after, and the effect was obvious — I could even feel it. Of course, you can’t help but see the effect of stress relief and mood improvement, not only with me but everyone.
