Company Introduction

PEI Educatio Group INC focuses on the Vitual Reality Remote Education, Mental Health Treatment and Image-guided Therapy AI Space. Nature Medicine (May 04, 2020) stated that "A surge in mental-health problems related to the COVID-19 pandemic is on the horizon. The time to prepare and prevent another health-crisis wave is now." As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread around the world, a new dimension of public health has emerged that requires urgent attention. The evidence has been shown that the virtual reality has emerged as a viable tool to help in a number of different disorders, with the most strength of evidence for use in exposure therapy for patients with anxiety disorders, cue exposure therapy for patients with substance use disorders, and distraction for patients with acute pain requiring painful procedures. Some of our co-founders pioneered the research on remote sensing and mental health risk assessment. For more details, please see our papers listed below:
