So how did Neuro Rehab VR started ?
So how did Mieron VR started ?
Besides its impact on the medical community, there’s also a great story about how the idea for Mieron came to be. It goes back several years ago to a young girl named Eden Hoelscher, who became paralyzed from the waist down after she suffered a spinal stroke while doing a backbend in her living room. Jessica and Mieron co-founder, Josh Dubon, had just recently filmed a VR documentary with Eden’s uncle, a pretty well-known mural artist named Greg “Craola” Simkins.
After the injury happened, Eden’s family ended up moving to Kentucky, where they enrolled her in a specialized rehabilitation program, but being just five years old when she got hurt, Eden really struggled in her rehab sessions so her parents started looking for other options. During the course of doing so, the family started hearing stories about VR helping other victims of spinal cord injuries, so having just recently worked together on the mural documentary using VR, Simkins reached out to Josh and Jessica to see if they could help, and long-story-short, that’s how the idea for Mieron was born. Anyways, years later, Eden’s made great strides and Mieron’s is now having a measurable impact on the spinal cord and brain injury community all around the world.
