Several studies demonstrate the effectiveness of virtual reality-based exposure therapy for patients with eating disorders. Virtual reality can be a vital tool to reduce the desire or impulse towards food and normalize eating patterns. Our technology can also support patients as they become aware of the ways in which they distort their body image. With food exposure and body image environments, patients can confront these distortions, achieve a realistic self-perception and reduce body dissatisfaction. We aim to improve serious conditions associated with eating behaviors that negatively affect health.
Our restaurant environment was designed to control the intake and compensatory behaviors that generate a greater impulse or fear of eating.
These environments offer the crucial infrastructure with which you can discuss with your patient the distortion of their own image, which they can now observe objectively through their real silhouette.
