MyndVR Taps Littlstar to Launch VR Service for 55-Plus Adult
MyndVR, the national leader in providing virtual reality (VR) solutions for senior living communities, and Littlstar, a global content network dedicated to virtual reality, 360-degree video and immersive experiences, are pleased to announce an exclusive partnership to deliver VR content to older adults. MyndVR powered by Littlstar will provide seniors with access to immersive and meaningful experiences from the top content producers in the world, including DiscoveryVR, National Geographic, USA Today Network, and The Wall Street Journal.
MyndVR’s goal is to provide a unique blend of licensed and original content designed to improve the lives and cognitive outcomes of adults 55-plus. Using Littlstar’s industry-leading streaming capabilities and a customized MyndVR interface, the partnership will provide freshly updated content on a regular basis as part MyndVR’s end-to-end solution which also includes VR headsets and technical support.
“Through this partnership, we have access to amazing and highly relevant VR experiences in the Littlstar app, which allows us to ensure that seniors can easily participate in these experiences through a seamless streaming platform,” said Chris Brickler, co-founder and CEO of MyndVR. “We recently completed a large-scale national pilot with several hundred people in senior living communities, including those living independently and those with Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s and other age-related conditions. We witnessed firsthand what content works specifically for seniors, and we understand that the aging mind wants to continue to learn, create and explore. The technology holds tremendous therapeutic promise, and our goal is to give seniors across the country access to an affordable VR solution.”
“We couldn't be more thrilled about our partnership with MyndVR, and see a huge opportunity to bring immersive content into health care to improve people's lives. By working with MyndVR, we can use our best in class technology and substantial library of content to reach a new audience that may have otherwise not been able to have these experiences,” said Tony Mugavero, founder and CEO of Littlstar. “Any senior living or health care facilities not using VR today are missing a huge opportunity.”
In addition to the licensed and original content, MyndVR is also developing interactive cognitive exercises. MyndVR is currently accepting presales for its virtual reality solution for senior living communities nationwide.
