MultiModal Health creates VR games to boost occupational therapy for patients

i-Hr7th6f-XL-630x420Almost two years ago, a team of University of Washington students won the university’s TechSandbox competition with a virtual reality game designed to help patients with neurological damage recover from injuries. In December of 2015, team members Lars Crawford, Brian Mogen, and Tyler Libey spun their startup — MultiModal Health — out of the University of Washington, and have since begun pilot projects in clinics around Seattle. The startup will be rolling out vHAB, the product’s official name, over the coming weeks. They will also be presenting vHAB at the American Occupational Therapy conference this April, where they will be looking for more potential partners. The inspiration behind vHAB? Get patients more engaged with their occupational therapy.
