The story

XRHealth has raised $10 million of funding to establish the telehealth provider’s virtual clinics as the “treatment rooms of the Metaverse”.

HTC, Bridges Israel impact investment fund, AARP, crowdfunding investors on StartEngine.com and existing investors supplied the new funding, with XRHealth now closely aligning its virtual clinics, which provide at-home medical treatment through virtual and augmented reality (VR and AR) technology, with the Metaverse, the catch-all term being employed to describe the next-generation 3D internet.

XRHealth combines VR and other immersive and digital technologies into a platform that patients can access at home. Their doctors can remotely monitor their progress and adjust a range of therapeutic treatments for pain management, depression, physical injuries, and more.

Initially accessible via Pico Neo 2 VR headsets, the treatments can now also be accessed via VIVE Focus 3 and Flow. Of course, HTC VIVE recently released VIVERSE, another metaverse project in the works.

Commenting on HTC’s investment in XRHealth following the expansion of its virtual clinics to HTC VIVE headsets, co-founder and chairwoman Cher Wang says: “Together, we’re taking the next step in growing the open ecosystem and providing greater access to care while reducing costs. Interoperability is key and working with XRHealth opens a world of possibilities in using technology for good.”

Eran Orr, chief executive officer of XRHealth, adds: “XRHealth is putting virtual clinics into users’ pockets at a critical time in the changing landscape of the medical delivery and the technology industry.”

“We are leveraging these changes to create a new form of healthcare that is accessible at any time of day, from any location in the virtual environment of the Metaverse, where treatment can be personalised and adjusted based on real-time analytics.”
