Advances in technology have made many new experiences possible. Virtual and Augmented Reality Technology - hardware and software- allows us to create engaging and compelling new experiences.
Health practitioners have realised that this provides us with new therapeutic possibilities. There are already companies working to provide virtual reality scenarios to provide phobic people with compellingly realistic engagement with feared events.
Other companies provide deeply engaging experiences that allow burns victims to distract from pain; another company is leveraging VR experiences to increase engagement with physiotherapy exercises; others to try and reduce paranoia in schizophrenics.
Our model involves the development of a totally new way of experiencing the self, and a new model of therapy. We envisage unlocking an entire new set of possibilities for therapy and human Neuroplastic change. We aim to use this technology to bridge gaps in human functioning. We are already well advanced in developing our devices and models and we will be starting treatment trials shortly. We call it the Tranceducer(TM). You can call it ‘the future of psychology’.
Neurotechnology Pty Ltd was established in 2018. It emerges out of the vision of Wilfred Lax, a Clinical Psychologist with over thirty years of experience, who is very excited about the possibilities of neuroplasticity and the powerful experiences afforded by new technologies (VR, AR and XR). He has joined his experience in psychology with the technical artistry of 42 Interactive who have the expertise and technical skill to generate the innovative VR experiences required. This synergy has allowed for the creation of the Tranceducer which is at the frontier of cutting edge technology and which pushes forward, the boundaries of psychological theory and practise. Neurotechnology is the creator of the Tranceducer, CognitiVR and Instacalm – ‘The Lake House’, ‘The White Room’ and ‘The Sky Garden’.
