About us

We combine rehabilitation care with the unique possibilities of virtual reality

Lack of specialists and long waiting periods. This is a common situation in rehabilitation. Yet, it is timely and regular exercise that is the key to progress in the treatment of patients. Our personal experience with this issue led us to develop our application. The aim is not to replace rehabilitation workers, but to make their work much easier.

VR Vitalis Pro is an innovative application that is certified as a medical device and is specifically designed with the needs of professional rehabilitation departments in mind. It is a combination of rehabilitation care with the revolutionary possibilities of virtual reality, which brings quality medical care and efficient operation of the rehabilitation department.
