Australia’s Health Provider Bupa Offers XRHealth to Customers for Physiotherapy Needs
BOSTON, the leader in extended reality therapeutic applications and XR telehealth services, announced that Bupa, Australia’s largest health insurer, is offering its customers the opportunity to participate in an XRHealth trial for physiotherapy needs. The initial deployment of XRHealth will provide patients with virtual reality, immersive exercises in the comfort of their homes.
As part of the initial deployment, patients will work directly with a clinician via XRHealth’s virtual reality telehealth solution to receive a personalized treatment plan that is therapeutic, fun, and engaging. Clinicians receive data on patient progress so that they can accurately measure treatment outcomes to enhance therapeutic results.

Bupa’s Managing Director of Health Insurance, Emily Amos, believes that it is crucial for patients to have telehealth solutions especially during the COVID-19 pandemic since accessing physiotherapy in-person can be difficult.
“We trialled this with selected customers earlier in the year and the results were overwhelmingly positive with customers reporting that they enjoyed the XRHealth program and found it extremely convenient,” said Ms. Amos. “This has the potential to be a truly transformational offering and we are looking forward to seeing results of the expanded trial.”
Following the initial offering, Bupa will make the platform available to more customers starting September 1, 2020 with a wider rollout planned for 2021.
“We are excited to partner with Australia’s largest health insurer to deliver this innovative model of care to Australia,” said Eran Orr, CEO of XRHealth. “COVID-19 highlighted telehealth as a crucial component of the healthcare industry that can have profound effects on patient continued care.”
