XR Institute s.r.o. (Extended Reality Institute) is since 2019 focused on applied research, industrial research and experimental development in the latest technological area.
The main focus is on the areas of virtual and augmented reality and ergonomics. Our activity mainly covers the industrial production sector, however, we also operate in the areas of logistics, administration, healthcare, education and security forces.
We implement our activities in order to increase the quality of life and overall health of the population. Our goal is to increase the intensity, quality and speed of dissemination of innovations and technology transfer into the economic practice of our region, with an emphasis on progressive (high-tech) technologies.
We started as a successful startup of the University of West Bohemia. Our enthusiasm and perseverance have put us in the position of number one in the field of ergonomics and virtual reality in the Czech Republic, with the ambition to become the bearer of innovative solutions at the international level.
In our virtual and augmented reality laboratory, we have at our disposal a number of technical devices that help us to develop and test applications corresponding to the latest trends. Software support is also an integral part.
Our ergonomics and occupational health protection laboratory is certified by the State Health Institute. With the use of the latest modern technologies, we take research in ergonomics to a new level.
The project is focused on creating a structured system in the field of training and reactions in risk situations involving members of the Police using virtual reality and will be divided into 2 modules which simulates real situations of Police.
The main goal of the project is to streamline the education of healthcare workers in the field of health and safety using virtual reality. The project creates a number of educational software applications in specific areas of health care and partially also in the area of social services.
The applications developed in this internal project aim to improve the life or health status of patients in post-operative conditions, after injuries, oncology patients or patients diagnosed with autism, dementia or muscular atrophy.
