Oxford mental health tech company wins UK digital award for second year

Oxford VR

Oxford VR, the company providing immersive technology for mental health, has been recognised with a gold win in the Best Use of Emerging Technology category at the UK Digital Experience Awards for the second year running.

The UK Digital Experience Awards (DXA) recognise the finest accomplishments from the UK’s digital organisations. The Awards celebrate the organisations, teams and individuals who are achieving great digital results.

The Best Use of Emerging Technology category is for organisations embracing the ever-changing digital landscape by using emerging technology to improve their customer experience. Oxford VR was recognised for its research and innovation in delivering effective Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. In particular it was recognised for its latest social engagement program, a ground-breaking and progressive mental health intervention that uses virtual reality technology to help individuals overcome anxious social avoidance.

Earlier this year, Oxford VR secured a $12.5 million investment – a record for VR therapy investment in Europe to advance its real-world impact in behavioural health, and accelerate clinical leadership in the U.S.

Oxford VR’s therapy has the potential to transform mental health for millions by combining immersive technology with world-class, clinically validated science.

This year Oxford VR launched its new Social Engagement program, which applies proven evidence-based cognitive behavioural therapy through immersive virtual reality environments.
