Competitors

Competition

To the best of our knowledge, the aforementioned competitor is the only VR startup focusing on autism. They are still in the prototype stage, though, and still relying on pilot programs to test their prototype. Classical approaches of therapy are also one of our competitors but there is a clear evidence that VR-based and supplemented therapy efficiently enhances the recovery rate and impact of these classical approaches.

KPI's

  • 0 Number of collaborating therapy centers
  • 0 Number of modules in the prototype

Startup traction

- Two of the most prestigious therapy centers in Alexandria, Egypt, collaborate with us on the prototype development and the clinical validation stages. Another well-known therapy center in Doha, Qatar, also collaborates with us. This is the KPI of the customer validation stage.
- We started by developing one module in the prototype and the completion of it had been planned to mark the completion of the job. Now, we have reached 4 modules. This is the KPI of the prototype development stage. This is an indication of the diversity of modules that can be worked on; yet, we stick to these four modules for now to prove the concept on a rich and extensive prototype.
