What is Virotea?

Virotea offers welfare technology based on Virtual Reality, abbreviated as VR, that enables visual impressions and experiences from all over the world.

The services offered by Virotea are mainly used within the domain of social efforts and are tailored to the needs of elderly care and Support and Service for Persons with Certain Functional Impairments (LSS). The services offer meaningful activities where care recipients – individually or collectively – may experience and discover places from all over the world, without having to leave their rooms.

Guided sightseeing tours in VR!

Virotea also offers guided sightseeing tours in Virtual Reality, where the user may be part of a traveling experience and learn interesting facts. The tours are custom made for elderly care and LSS, which means the information is easy to comprehend and with a slow and peaceful tempo.

Feel the pulse of the city and watch the neon lights of Times Square in New York City or explore the narrow alleys of Jerusalem’s market district. Bring your elderly care home on an expedition through the lush jungles of the Amazon or enjoy the white beaches of Gran Canaria or Bali. Why not just relax and enjoy your own personal classical concert, performed by professional musicians?

Benefits of Welfare Technology

  • Discover new places and environments
  • Rediscover old memories
  • Explore the world together with other care recipients
  • Group activity that prevents loneliness

For care recipients, Virtual Reality is a means to discover the world together with their care givers or other care recipients. Las Vegas, London or Malmö are only a few of the places that are possible to visit together. Virotea helps strengthen the social bonds and sense of community among the care recipients and consequently helps diminish the sense of loneliness and isolation. By using welfare technology, we spark feelings of joy, curiosity and motivation. Since it’s easier to acquire information when the content is entertaining and exciting, VR becomes a powerful tool for learning and familiarization.

What is VIRTUAL REALITY?

Virtual Reality, or VR, is a technology that simulates real environments in a 360 degree angle, either by still frames or moving content. VR is experienced using a VR headset that allows the user to freely look around and discover their surroundings. Without having to physically move, the user may visit the great pyramids of Giza or even relocate the retirement home to the beaches of Thailand.

Possibilities with using VIROTEA

Virotea’s services are mainly used within the care of elderly and individuals with special needs, but the service could potentially also fulfill educational, pedagogic and rehabilitating needs. Please contact Virotea for further information on how we can offer custom made, tailored solutions to your operation.

  • A meaningful activity for care recipients
  • Welfare technology that doesn’t require technical knowledge of VR
  • A gentle learning curve, easy to get started
  • Portable solution
  • Group activity that includes several care recipients simultaneously

Virotea offers welfare technology that is easily implemented in the daily routines of any caregiving operation. In order to seamlessly integrate Virotea’s services, the service has been developed in close collaboration with caregivingpersonnel. This collaboration has resulted in the service not requiring any previous experience or technical knowledge on how to use VR while also being valuable and entertaining to the care recipients. Advanced welfare technology with a steep learning curve often times ends up being unused, which is something Virotea wants to avoid. By using Virotea, the care recipients get a meaningful activity while it also might give the caregivers more time to perform other tasks relevant to taking care of our seniors and special needs individuals.

VR in Health and Social Care

Virotea offers services specially developed to fulfill the needs of retirement homes and special needs housing (LSS).

Current and future generations of senior citizens often request more digitalized solutions and are often unwilling to be left behind in the technological development. Virotea wants to help by offering digital solutions that are easy to use and understand.
