Bring well-being to as many people as possible
Breaking the isolation and desocialization of vulnerable people is one of the great challenges of our century. We have made it our mission to respond to the problems of reduced motor skills, memory loss, and psychological suffering related to cognitive disorders by developing a unique, easy-to-use technology.
A pillar of the "Tech for Good", the innovation offered by VirtySens makes it possible to strengthen the link between residents and caregivers, and to escape thanks to a visual and sensitive experience that allows you to feel well-being and forgotten sensations.
Xavier Melin, father of little Lilou, had a successful career and a fulfilling life. However, his life was turned upside down by love for his daughter.
Autistic, his daughter Lilou dropped out of school when she was 7 years old, and had to be placed in hospital permanently, then partially, alternating with the family home.
He then had a new idea in mind: to develop a multi-sensory device for Lilou, in order to make her feel new sensations, to channel her, and to make her discover new horizons.
The VirtySens project was born!
The feedbacks from the first prototypes were very encouraging. Then, Xavier turned to the Euratechnologies incubator to grow his ambitious project. Within the incubator, he met his first partner, Ludovic Wiart, thus enabling VirtySens to meet the many technical and technological challenges, then Guillaume Lucas who joined the team as co-founder by bringing his financial expertise, his strategy skills, and its network. This tripartite collaboration took VirtySens to a new dimension.
The story of Lilou and Xavier has become over time a human, entrepreneurial and united adventure in the service of a mission: to do good to as many people as possible!
