CODY Testing 1
We are testing a Virtual Reality – or VR -- program for using and experiencing home modifications. Virtual Reality is a three-dimensional computer simulation of an environment that you see in a headset. We call this VR program “CODY.”
The purpose of this research is to assess how useful CODY is in assisting and enhancing the ability of adults to experience and choose appropriate home modifications for themselves.
