In our quest to improve your virtual reality well-being experience through SpiritVR, we recently received a certification from Orcha – a baseline review that certifies whether our app is appropriate in endorsing health and well-being.

Orcha, short for Organisation for the Review of Care and Health Apps, is the world’s number one technology provider for delivering safe digital health. Orcha plays a crucial role in evaluating the safety and effectiveness of establishing standards.

We hope to assure users, healthcare professionals, and organisations that our virtual reality well-being app meets rigorous safety and effectiveness standards.

At SpiritVR, we are committed to providing a platform that not only captivates but also prioritises the well-being and accessibility of our users. To improve our VR experience, we are taking significant steps to elevate our scores on the Orcha platform, specifically focusing on Data, Usability, and Accessibility.

Our recent evaluation of Orcha produced promising results, with SpiritVR scoring 77% overall!

Data Score: 65%

We understand the importance of privacy and data security in the digital age. Rest assured, SpiritVR is designed with your privacy in mind. We want to emphasise that we do not capture any data inside the headset. To improve our Data score, we actively communicate openly with Orcha to change this score. Our goal is to strengthen the transparency and reliability of the data scoring process by working closely with the Orcha team to review and refine our data score.

Usability and Accessibility Score: 82%

One of our core principles is to make virtual reality accessible to everyone. We are very proud of how high our Usability and Accessibility scores are, especially for VR. We have invested significant time in crafting an intuitive and user-friendly interface, catering to all levels of VR familiarity, even for those who have never used VR before. Looking ahead, we are excited about the potential for advancements in headsets. To make the SpiritVR experience even more seamless, we are actively exploring the integration of hand-tracking technology. This will not only enhance the ease of interaction but also eliminate the need for traditional controllers, making SpiritVR even more accessible to a wider audience.

Professional Assurance Score: 82%

We are extremely grateful to the individuals and organisations who have played a pivotal role in ensuring the professionalism and quality of SpiritVR. Special thanks to Catherine Knibbs, Suzanne from Balanced Horizons, and The Mind Map for their invaluable contributions to testing SpiritVR and helping us write the well-being material. Their expertise in mental health and well-being has been a huge part in shaping the immersive and therapeutic aspects of our virtual reality experience.

Aims to get into the NHS

Our ongoing research and data collection shows how SpiritVR can be used by healthcare professionals to utilise virtual reality, helping with mental well-being within the NHS. We aim to assist and educate healthcare professionals in these emerging fields.

We prioritise mental well-being, so we wish to collaborate with NHS mental health professionals through SpiritVR to address stress, anxiety, and other mental health challenges.

We wish to continue to expand our studies on the benefits of integrating VR into healthcare to showcase how VR can be used as a tool for learning and mental wellbeing.

As we continue to evolve and improve SpiritVR, your feedback remains crucial. We invite you to share your thoughts and experiences, helping us refine and enhance the platform for the entire community.

Thank you for being a part of the SpiritVR Journey.
