Floreo Virtual Reality Health and Safety Warnings

Virtual reality is not recommended for people with certain pre-existing conditions such as a history of seizures or photosensitive response on EEG, eye movement impairments such as strabismus, migraines, or who may be prone to motion sickness. 

Some people who use virtual reality experience cybersickness, which is related to motion sickness and vertigo. Symptoms include general discomfort, headache, nausea, sweating, and fatigue. If this happens, it will go away after using the virtual reality app.

The vision of young children (especially those under six years old) is still under development.  

Consult with your child’s doctor or optometrist before allowing young children to watch virtual reality images or play virtual reality games. Adults should supervise young children to ensure they follow the recommendations listed above.

Various virtual reality headset manufacturers have their own health and safety warnings included with the hardware (such as Oculus, Samsung, HTC, etc). Users are responsible to read, evaluate and follow these guidelines, warnings and instructions. Please ensure all users do use the headset in accordance with these health and safety warnings. Adults should monitor children closely during and after use of virtual reality headsets.

We recommend that you consult with your doctor or talk to our team if you have any questions about the risks of virtual reality.
