EmmaRye™

A VR MRI Simulator For Anxiety Relief & Patient Wellbeing

BY VRAL CORP

Immersive training to reduce fear, calm the body, and expedite the MRI process.

What Is EmmaRye™?

Emma Rye™ is a pre-MRI training tool designed to put anyone at ease and help them avoid moving during the actual procedure. Undergoing an MRI is a frightening experience for children and adults alike. The process demands that the patient remains still, in spite of the loud noise and confined space. Many patients require sedation, which carries its own inherent risks and high cost.

Designed by pediatric physicians and VR experts, EmmaRye™ can change the experience of undergoing radiology procedures from frightening to exhilarating. Turning kids’ frowns upside-down during an MRI. Emma Rye™ is developed in Toronto, Canada and uses patent-pending technology and software.
