San Francisco, CA – Medical errors are the 3rd leading cause of death in the U.S. and a global problem affecting 232 million patients. Boon VR was designed to solve this issue by using cutting edge virtual reality technology to provide life-like, on-demand training for medical procedures.
To help get this technology to hospitals and doctors around the world, Founder and CEO Ridhima Parvathaneni has launched a crowdfunding investment offering onRepublic that ends in 20 days. Investments start at $250 to get on the ground floor of a phenomenal technology transforming the healthcare industry.
“As we speak, the cutting-edge immersion of Boon VR is being used to train doctors on new procedures. It is a revolution that has begun, so that patients of these doctors can be safer and healthier, and their families relieved,” said Parvathaneni, “VR is the dawn of a new technological era. An incredible sense of presence is felt, almost like you are physically in an operating room. Healthcare must take full advantage of what VR immersion provides.”
Boon VR is spearheaded by a team of experts, including a leading cardiothoracic surgeon, multiple MedTech influencers, a veteran startup CTO, a former COO of Salesforce, a former Senior Director of Development at Oracle, all led by Ridhima, a successful serial entrepreneur.
They believe that with VR training, life-saving medical devices such as pacemakers and neurosurgery devices can reach patients faster, because doctors can learn how to implement them quicker.
“Adoption of Boon VR is early, we need to spread the word across countries. Wherever there is a healthcare system, from New York City to Nairobi in Africa, doctors deserve to train using the latest technology,” Parvathaneni explained, “I’ve invested over a quarter of a million dollars of my own money earned from previous successful venture into our product. If you haven’t seen what VR can do yet, you’re missing out.”
Since launching the investment opportunity, Boon VR has received a lot of positive media attention, including an episode on Sony TV featuring Parvathaneni and four of Silicon Valley’s leading investors – Bill Draper, Tim Draper, Jesse Draper and Rajeev Madhavan. Boon VR was also featured on the KingsCrowd platform and given a ‘BUY’ recommendation.
In addition, Republic did a founder story on Ridhima Parvathaneni where she talked candidly about why she is choosing to raise investment funds from the public and not just the traditional venture capitalists. During the interview, Austin Federa asked Parvathaneni about her story of building Boon VR, the twists and turns, and who she turns to for personal inspiration.
“People claim that VR has been around for a while – why don’t we see it everywhere?” asked Parvathaneni, “Well, you need a must-have use-case, and I say Boon VR is the one. If you walk into medical conferences this year, you will see it.”
