FIRSTHAND IS MAKING VR RESEARCH A REALITY

Firsthand has helped pioneer the research and practical application Virtual Reality for over 20 years. We are experts at building virtual worlds to help people achieve their best. Our VR experiences are the result of years collaborating with doctors and scientists to help relieve pain, reduce stress, and increase human performance.

Our biggest focus has been using Virtual Reality to improve health and wellness. Numerous scientific studies have shown VR can effectively reduce short term and chronic pain, and alleviate anxiety and mental illness. What’s really extraordinary is brain scans show VR can have a significant impact on brain activity, enhance mindfulness, and can reduce the need for drugs.

Firsthand is translating decades of promising VR research into products for you today.
