Abstract [en]

VIMSE is a new spider phobia exposure application developed for use on next generation VR headsets. Developed by Mimerse AB for the Stockholm University Department of Psychology the application advances exposure technology along a number of important fronts. VIMSE uses gamification to increase user engagement and learning, is fully automated with a virtual therapist to allow at home-self care, contains multiple open-ended environments and lighting to ensure exposure in multiple contexts, as well as a range of spiders, spider behaviors and stimuli intensity levels to ensure gradually increasing exposure levels. Collaboration with a for-profit corporation ensures the application is market-ready and scalable rather than restricted to a research environment. VIMSE is currently completing clinical trials comparing it to gold-standard one session therapy phobia treatment in a group of 100 spider phobics.
