Virtual reality in residential care: Which benefits for the physical and mental health of long-term care residents?
Dr. Stavros Skouras is the CTO and founder of Senopi AG (www.senopi.com). With his team, he develops Digital Health solutions and Digital Therapeutics (DTx) to improve senior healthcare, by leveraging Virtual Reality. Previously, he specialised in developing neuroimaging applications for the early detection of Alzheimer’s disease and taught cognitive neuroscience topics in several universities, including the Free University of Berlin, the University of Sussex, Pompeu Fabra University and the University of Zurich.
