Virtual MRI Simulation | Child and Adolescent Mental Health Center
Client: Child and Adolescent Mental Health Center
Target Medium: Samsung Gear VR
Task: Most children that undergo in an MRI machine have to be sedated. This happens due to the not being able to stand still for so long, and also due to feeling restless with all the unknown noises that the machine makes. To test if they could bring down the number of sedated children, the Research Unit from the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Center in Copenhagen reached out to Khora to produce a virtual simulation of what it looked like to go through an MRI scanner.
The virtual reality simulation featured a narrator that walked the viewer through what equipment is used for an MRI scan. The user then lays down before going into the virtual MRI scanner to preview what it looks and sounds like inside.
The Virtual MRI Simulation is currently being used in these research projects VIA11 ; Copsych ; TECTO
