VR isn't just better than what you're used to.
Starting with the basics: FAQs
Keeping up with VR's growing role in healthcare can be difficult (and overwhelming). Our Frequently Asked Questions contain relevant research and more information about how we work with our partners.
Discover the evidence leading us forward!
In our Learning Hub, you'll find seminal research from the intersections of healthcare and VR. It's this evidence that will continue to shape the future of clinical VR.
Meet our team!
We are a passionate group of clinicians, patients, scientists, storytellers and creators, brought together by uncommon experiences to pursue a common mission: to change the way we see and experience our care.
Starting with "why"
To give you an idea of where it all began for the team here at IKONA, read about our CEO's personal patient journey and why he felt compelled to find a solution.
If you have any questions about how we work, who we work with, or even where to begin, we made this for you.

Having studied the brain basis of learning, memory and performance for the last 30 years, the brain science is clear: virtual reality (VR) speeds learning and enhances retention by engaging multiple learning and memory systems in the brain in synchrony. Learners enjoy the experience and gain knowledge while having fun!
We are often asked how virtual reality compares to the flat video-based tools or classroom-based instruction that we are all used to. The differences are significant; but best of all, they are measurable:
VR leads to better initial learning;
VR reduces the rate of forgetting;
VR boosts retention versus traditional classroom education;
VR long-term memory retention 4x better than traditional learning;
VR empathy 2x higher than traditional training;

We keep it simple. When you sign up for a subscription, we'll send you everything you need, including your headset!
Check out our FAQs for more details on the "how", "what", and "why" behind how it all works.
Yes, but don't worry, we'll be taking care of that! When you subscribe with us, we send as many Oculus Go virtual reality headsets as you need.
Already have an Oculus Go headset? Perfect, just let us know and we'll help you get started.
Our monthly subscriptions are priced per headset and based on the amount of content that you'd like access to. Subscriptions start at $149/month per headset. More information can be found on our subscription pricing page and in our overview deck.
Reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any specific questions on pricing plans or how we support organizations of all types and sizes across healthcare.
We do not make our content available in 2-D for use on laptops, PCs, tablets, or smartphones. This approach takes into account i) the interactive nature of our content modules; ii) the role gaze-tracking plays in our ability to deliver insights to customers; and iii) the inherent benefits and advantages of immersive technologies that are entirely lost in flat content.
Our platform will not replace your computer-based training programs; rather, it will actually enhance its performance when the two are used together. The two methods are fundamentally different yet complementary offerings in the training space.
