An all-virtual edition for the VR 4 COVID REHAB Dev Jams

A day entirely dedicated to XR rehabilitation for covid and long covid patients, on September 10th, 8 teams will compete to decree the winning idea.

The best ideas generated during the Hackathon (17 to 21 May 2021) enter a phase of development: the aim of Dev Jam is to develop VR and AR technology-based concepts building on the ideas that emerged in the hackathon.

On 10th September 2021, 7 teams will compete to decree the winning idea to develop VR and AR technology-based concepts that emerged in the hackathon (17 to 21 May 2021). A day entirely dedicated to XR rehabilitation for covid and long covid patients.

During the previous weeks, all the Teams had the opportunity to discuss with the VR4REHAB experts about the support needed to produce a prototype of the solution they are working on, and how to exploit their idea in order to commercialize it.

At the Dev Jam, the teams will further elaborate the concepts and realize their ideas into applications. At the end of the day, there will be pitches for a jury, selecting the best concepts.
