Product Updates

This three-part lab can be experienced all at once or separately At the beginning of each part, Beatriz's brain acts as an omniscient narrator, helping learners understand how changes to the brain affect daily life and interactions.
 
Pre and post assessments, along with a facilitation guide, allow learners and instructors to see progression towards outcomes that are addressed through the story and content in the three parts, including:
 
1) increased knowledge of Alzheimer's disease and the brain
2) enhanced confidence to care for people with Alzheimer's disease
3) improvement in care practice

Why a lab about Alzheimer's Disease?

The Beatriz Lab is very important to us at Embodied Labs. It is the experience that inspired the start of our company. We believe VR is more than a way to evoke feelings of empathy; rather, it is a powerful behavior change tool. By taking the perspective of Beatriz, healthcare professionals and trainees are empowered to better care for people with Alzheimer’s disease, leading to more effective care practices and better quality of life. Through embodying Beatriz, you will gain insight into life with Alzheimer’s and be able to better connect with and care for your loved ones, patients, clients, or others in this communities who live with the disease every day. In our embodied VR experience, we hope to portray both the difficult and joyful moments -- the disease surely is a mix of both.

As part of the experience, you will take a 360 degree trip into Beatriz's brain, and visit a neuron "forest" that is being affected by amyloid beta plaques and tau proteins.

Embodied Labs CEO at MedTech Impact Conference

Carrie joined VR and AR colleagues from Brainpower, AppliedVR, and MediVis for a panel discussion on how AR and VR are shaping "new realities in medicine".
