VR-based Education in Social Interactions

ViroteaED is a VR-based education software designed to better understand and interact with individuals with cognitive impairments. It has been developed in collaboration with the Cognition Team of Karlstad Municipality and Silviasystrar specializing in dementia care.

Virotea's VR-based training offers healthcare personnel within disability services and elderly care a unique opportunity to experience everyday situations from the perspective of individuals with cognitive impairments such as autism and dementia. Through simulations with VR goggles, staff gain a deeper understanding of their challenges and needs.

How it works

This training, tailored for healthcare and social care, should be seen as a complement to traditional care education. The skills development is suitable for all types of care functions and employment forms, such as permanent staff, new hires, summer substitutes, and management teams. The delivery of the VR goggles takes only 2-4 days from order, and after that, we arrange a kickoff meeting either in person or digitally with a representative from the Virotea team. Thereafter, the operation itself (supervisor) is responsible for training its staff with the support of Virotea.

Quality assured content

The content and design of this VR-based training in customer interaction have been meticulously developed in collaboration with the Cognition Team and Silviasystrarna in the municipality of Karlstad. With their knowledge and experience in cognitive impairments, they have quality-assured the VR training. The result is an educational experience that is both engaging and effective. Thanks to this collaboration, we can guarantee that the training provides participants with tools and insights that are directly applicable in their daily work.

The scope of ViroteaED

In addition to the VR headset and course materials, the package also includes information on the use of various educational aids for these two specific areas. Within disability services, this includes tools such as social stories and choice boards, while staff in elderly care learn to handle topics such as loneliness, delusions, and how to adapt the living environment. We also offer the opportunity to customize the VR-based skills development according to individual wishes and needs.

Memorable learning

It's difficult to explain with words or text how someone with autism, for example, experiences the world. With Virotea's VR-based skills development, healthcare staff receive memorable learning that differs from traditional methods, where information often gets lost among books. By experiencing various realistic and engaging situations, the knowledge sticks in a much more effective way.


VR technology allows healthcare staff to experience and practice work situations in virtual reality over and over again without the need to involve real care recipients. This provides a unique opportunity for continuous training and development, leading to increased competence, a safer work environment, and better care.

Improved interactions

Through increased empathy and understanding towards individuals with cognitive disabilities, healthcare professionals gain new tools to improve their approach, leading to a better care experience for the recipient of care.


Virotea's VR-based training is available through an annual subscription model and can be customized to meet specific needs and requirements. Contact us to receive a tailored quote that fits your organization's needs.
