Foren Project is a revolutionary treatment that innovatively applies immersive technology to neurological rehabilitation. Their tool of choice for optical flow stitching is SGO's virtual reality-focused solution, Mistika VR.

Charo Ort n, founder and CEO at Foren Project, explains that this groundbreaking method is based on mirror neurons that are triggered by imitation. It is not necessary for the patient to perform a movement; observation and imitation of the exercise make the mirror neurons grow and this is their true power.

Based on that principle, the team designed a novel treatment, using real', not virtual reality, explains Charo. When the patient puts on the VR headset, we do not wish to transfer them to a virtual, fantasy world. What we wanted was for the patient to see himself in the environment where he actually is.

Executing and successfully delivering Charo's idea from the content generation point of view was quite complex and demanding, says Rafa Naveiro, VR creator in Foren Project. At first we were going to shoot all the exercises at each clinic with two cameras with 8 mm fisheye lenses. This process turned out to be tedious and extremely time consuming, so we had to find a better solution.

Looking for camera alternatives, the team came across the Insta360 Pro 2, recording in 8K stereo. Suddenly we didn't have to carry two cameras, we didn't have to worry about calibration and it really sped up the whole onset process.





Another challenge that the Foren team wanted to overcome was to avoid having to go to record all the exercises at each clinic separately. Therefore we decided to first shoot all the exercises in a 360 chroma and then only record the empty rooms of each clinic. Once we had both parts, the idea was to simply merge everything together.

In addition, Rafa and his colleagues also wanted to improve the overall post-production workflow. The stitching program that we used at the beginning was very slow and the results were not optimal. This changed dramatically when we started to use Mistika VR, allowing us to do the whole process almost automatically and just in a few clicks. Improving the stereo alignment, almost automatic optical flow stitching with the integrated Pro 2 template and other tools incredibly facilitated the process throughout. Integrating Insta360 Pro 2 and Mistika VR into our workflow cut the time of the whole process in half, shared Rafa.

Apart from being pioneers in applying VR technology for neurological rehabilitation, the most important thing is the fact that this real-life VR stimulation really works. After having carried out several clinical trials and verifications, we have obtained very good results, concludes Charo Ort n.





Foren Project elige Mistika VR como herramienta principal para su m todo de rehabilitaci n neurol gica basado en tecnolog a VR



Foren Project es una compa a madrile a que de manera novedosa aplica la tecnolog a inmersiva en tratamientos neurol gicos. Su herramienta de stitching elegida es Mistika VR, la soluci n dedicada a la post-producci n de realidad virtual, desarrollada por la empresa espa ola SGO.



La fundadora y CEO de Foren Project, Charo Ort n explica que su m todo innovador se basa en el estudio de neuronas espejo, las que act an por imitaci n. Su poder es que no hace falta que el paciente realice el movimiento, sino que vi ndolo en un tercero e imit ndolo se consigue que las neuronas crezcan.

Bas ndose en ese concepto, el equipo dise un tratamiento novedoso, usando la realidad real, no virtual, explica Charo. Cuando el paciente se pone las gafas, no le trasladamos a una realidad virtual. Lo que quer amos era que el paciente se viera a s mismo en ese mismo entorno, que es donde de verdad est .

Realizar esa idea a nivel de producci n y tambi n de post-producci n fue bastante complejo, dice Rafa Naveiro, Realizador VR en Foren Project. Al principio bamos a grabar todos los ejercicios a cada cl nica con dos c maras con lentes de ojo de pez de 8 mm. Este proceso result tedioso y consumi much simo tiempo. Por lo tanto ten amos que encontrar una soluci n mejor. Buscando alternativas de c mara, encontraron la Insta360 Pro 2, que graba en 8K y estereosc pico. De repente no ten amos que llevar al set las dos c maras, no ten amos que preocuparnos por la calibraci n y nos agilizaba el proceso de grabaci n .

Otro reto que el equipo Foren quer a sobrepasar era evitar el hecho de tener que ir a grabar todos los ejercicios a cada cl nica por separado. Por lo tanto decidimos rodar primero todos los ejercicios en un chroma de 360 y luego solamente grabar las salas vac as de cada cl nica. As , una vez obtenidas las dos partes, simplemente fusionar todo.

Solventados los problemas de grabaci n, Rafa y sus compa eros quer an optimizar tambi n la postproducci n. El programa de stitching que us bamos al principio nos restaba mucho tiempo y los resultados no eran ptimos. Esto cambi cuando conocimos Mistika VR, que con unos pocos clicks nos permiti hacer todo el proceso de manera casi autom tica. Corregir el paralelo de la estereoscop a, stitching autom tico con la plantilla de la Pro 2 integrada y otras herramientas que agilizaron todo el proceso de una manera incre ble. La integraci n de Insta360 Pro 2 y Misti
