MyndVR Partners With Pico Interactive and Littlstar to Donate VR to Seniors in All 50 States

New partnership aims to give away MyndVR to combat social isolation in senior care communities in need

DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–MyndVR, the national leader in virtual reality (VR) solutions for senior living communities, is announcing its partnership with Pico Interactive and Littlstar to donate VR headsets to senior care communities in all 50 states to combat the effects of social isolation due to the COVID-19 crisis.

As senior living facilities are forced to shut their doors to non-medical personnel, the National Academies of Sciences reports social isolation has been associated with a significantly increased risk of premature mortality from all causes. The partnership will help combat this during the challenging times ahead.

Each community selected will receive a free headset along with training and support, and a one-year subscription to the most senior-friendly content available on the MyndVR network.

“We are so grateful to Pico Interactive and Littlstar for teaming up with us to donate this amazing, life-enriching program to seniors in care communities across the country,” said Chris Brickler, CEO of MyndVR. “It’s important that the AR/VR industry steps up in this isolation crisis, and we plan to deliver MyndVR to communities in need in all 50 states.”

“We are thankful to have this opportunity to partner with MyndVR to deliver 360-degree, immersive VR content directly to seniors across the country who are currently facing social isolation because of Covid-19,” said Littlstar co-founder and CEO Tony Mugavero. “The opportunity to expand the world virtually can bring so much happiness and comfort.”

“We are excited to be part of this initiative, to deploy our headsets to seniors across the country who are dealing with the effects of social isolation,” said Will Winston, Western Sales & Partnerships Director. “Our simple and easy-to-use design makes our hardware some the most durable and sanitizable solutions for virtual reality headsets on the market.”

The face inserts on Pico’s headsets are designed to be easy to clean and hygienic for mass use. MyndVR provides training on how to properly sanitize each headset between uses by including print instructions and video tutorials to show where it’s most important to clean and best materials for sanitization. MyndVR also includes alcohol wipes to ensure each care community has proper sanitizing material.

MyndVR is asking for communities interested in this program to visit www.myndvr.com/Covid-19 for more information and submitting an application. For those who might want to contribute and expand our 50-community donation, please visit www.myndvr.com/donate or call us at 800-620-7630.
