Esqapes Immersive Relaxation is a first-of-its-kind, VR augmented spa. Angeles Vista Creative Ventures, LLC combined beautifully crafted VR worlds with automation and traditional wellness practices. They accomplish this by pairing exotic virtual environments with extra sensory components including wind, heat and aromatherapy, all while receiving a full-body massage. Each Esqape environment is specifically designed to stimulate multiple senses with the goal of helping the mind and body to relax. Immersive Relaxation is a novel method of immersing users into a virtual environment, while ushering them into a heightened state of relaxation. Using this system taps into the key senses that people use to evaluate their surroundings (sight, sound, smell, touch) which in turn helps them to relax and feel comfortable.

The Challenge

Until recently, radiographers have only been able to improve their skills using an actual CT scanner. But access to these scanners is very limited due to their relative scarcity and patient demand. So GE Healthcare wanted help creating a VR environment that opened up more opportunities for their trainees – not only by increasing the number of practical training hours but also by training radiographers in more procedures.
