Virtual Reality Medical Institute (VRMI) is a Belgian corporation located in Zaventem (Brussels). Chosen as one of the first occupants of the Brussels Life Science Incubator (BLSI) for advanced technology and healthcare start-ups, VRMI was selected to participate in the June 2013 Belgian Economic Mission to California, led by Prince Philippe, now King Philippe, of Belgium.
VRMI established the first Belgium-based Virtual Reality (VR) and Biofeedback-enhanced Cognitive Behavioral Healthcare Clinic. VRMI now focuses on medical and psychological research studies using Virtual Reality technology, as well as participating in EU projects and EU consulting.
Using a Combined Communications Platform of an annual international conference, specialized workshops, clinician training courses, a peer-reviewed scientific journal, a quarterly magazine, and a website information portal, VRMI is also active in informing and educating the general public, policymakers, funding agents, industry and academia. Having been involved in R&D projects in Europe, Asia, and the U.S. for the past 25 years, the principals of VRMI are now bringing their clinically-validated products and protocols to the private practice setting.
VRMI has established affiliates in both China and the U.S. and envisages the goals of the EU in developing the healthcare of the future. VRMI has expertise in simulation technologies in three main areas: 1) treating patients with stress, anxiety, trauma, and chronic pain; 2) training for military medical and civilian first responder populations, and 3) enhancing medical educational programs. Working closely with the Belgian Erasmus Program, VRMI also serves as a mentor to Young Entrepreneurs.
