FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS: https://www.virtea.io/new/faq.html
Is my phone compatible?
The application has been tested on various mid-range models from 2017 onwards. To be sure that VirTEA works on your mobile you can try the demo version first.

Has it been tested by professionals?
Yes, various specialists from the Region of Murcia are using the application with diverse groups of children and young people with ASD.

What does the application include?
Currently VirTEA includes two scenarios, the visit to the dentist with which you can practice waiting and anticipate what you will find in a dental clinic, and visit the hairdresser, where you can also practice waiting and there will be many more noises. Soon the scene "waiting for the bus" will be included totally free where in addition to waiting and noise can be practiced in a more open environment.

Will there be more scenes?
Yes, we will develop more scenes that can be acquired later, as extensions of the basic version and at a lower price.

Is virtual reality dangerous?
No. However, there are some recommendations for use to ensure that the experience is rewarding. It is advisable not to do sessions of more than 30 minutes to avoid eye fatigue and possible dizziness. In addition, in the case of children under 12 years it is highly recommended that the sessions are not very long since their optic nerves are still developing.
