Founded by Ahmad Al-kabbany, an assistant professor at the Arab Academy for Science and Technology, Vrapeutic is an Egyptian research-based software startup using VR technology to develop therapeutic solutions for patients with autism. By collaborating with therapy centers in Alexandria and Doha, Vrapeutic are creating content that supplements the classical approaches
taken during a typical therapy session.
Vrapeutic have developed their prototype and are currently iterating on its design in collaboration with three therapy centers in Egypt and the Gulf region. In addition to one-size-fits-all VR content, the startup also offers customizable solutions that address the diverse personal needs of people on the autism spectrum.
During the summer, the team behind Vrapeutic sponsored the first AR/VR meet-up in Egypt, alongside AR social platform Augmania and IT service provider ITQAN. The event focused on issues such as social anxiety and how VR can empower individuals to overcome social obstacles. Vrapeutic’s future plans involve addressing other disorders and cases such as dyslexia, PTSD, physical therapy, pain management, addiction and elderly care. Vrapeutic are expected to work side-by-side with and offer services through public and private hospitals, therapy and rehabilitation centers, and private clinics.
