- About Us
One Environment Systems, a joint venture of Clalit™ Healthcare and private entrepreneurs, has developed a platform that enables patients to experience Virtual Reality during medical procedures as a mean to distract them from the ongoing treatment and to ease their pain.
OES is partly owned by Clalit, Israel’s largest health service organization. Clalit operates 14 hospitals, including psychiatric hospitals and a rehabilitation hospital, all of them university-affiliated. It also runs over 1,300 primary care clinics as well as a network of pharmacies and dental clinics.
- The Product
Customized Virtual Reality Medical Experience (“CVRME”) is a complete VR system which streams personalized VR content to patients during medical procedures.
Based on the patient’s personal preferences that are drawn from his/her social profiles and a short questionnaire that helps creating a psychological profile of the patient CVRME chooses the most relevant content to stream.
CVRME’s working hypothesis is that the more relevant the streamed content is, the better the distraction which leads to a much more effective treatment.
OES has conducted clinical study on 40 patients to test how VR affects pain and anxiety of patients before and during medical procedures. The study showed that most subjects showed a significant decrease in their anxiety level, as fully describe in the clinical study.
