Virtual Reality Laboratory

The Virtual Reality Laboratory

The Virtual Reality Laboratory is researching how cutting-edge virtual reality technology can be applied to help individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). This laboratory combines engineering and rehabilitation sciences to develop and evaluate new ways to care for individuals with IDD. This laboratory works with MMI’s clinical teams to build custom technologies that include the key therapeutic ingredients necessary for successful clinical outcomes.
