Are VR games suitable for children?
Children under 7 years of age will have difficulty wearing VR headsets, especially if their heads are small.

Not with all of them, as some VR headsets do not have enough space to connect a breathing headset while the phone is inside the VR headset.
Are these games suitable only for medical use or also entertainment?
VR games are very entertaining due to the immersive experience provided by the 3D panoramic view, so Breathing VR games are suitable for entertainment as well as clinical and/or psychiatric use.
What do health professionals think of your products?
Health professionals recommend our products mainly to people with breathing difficulties or stress-related disorders. Our products are based on a breathing technique called "pursed lip breathing" that is being recommended by most asthma, COPD, and pulmonary rehabilitation organizations worldwide.

"Keep using the pursed-lip breathing until the breathless feeling goes away. Rest In between breaths if you feel Dizzy. Give sips of room temperature water."
American Lung Association
“Pursed-lip breathing attempts to prolong active expiration through half-opened lips, thus helping to prevent airway collapse. Compared with spontaneous breathing, pursed-lip breathing reduces respiratory rate, dyspnea, and PaCO2, while improving tidal volume and oxygen saturation in resting conditions."
American Thoracic Society
"Pursed lip breathing is one of the simplest ways to control shortness of breath. It provides a quick and easy way to slow your pace of breathing, making each breath more effective."
“Inhaling through the nose and exhaling through pursed lips makes breathing easier. Pursed-lip breathing can also help you regain control if you’re having trouble catching your breath. You can practice breathing this way anytime, anywhere. If you’re watching TV, practice during the commercials. Try to practice several times a day. Over time, pursed-lip breathing will feel natural.”
University of Minnesota Medical Center
“Pursed lip breathing helps you use less energy to breathe. It can help you relax. When you are short of breath, it helps you slow the pace of your breathing and can help you feel less short of breath."
University of Iowa Children's Hospital
