Covid Compatible VR use

Our advice for Covid Compatible VR use
The COVID-19 pandemic raised many questions about how to ensure safety and hygiene when using VR/MR headsets.
In order to ensure compliance with health regulations, we recommend that you carefully maintain and clean your equipment each time you use it.
Here are some good practices:
  • Carefully disinfect the helmet body before and after each session. You can clean the helmet with non-abrasive antibacterial wipes.
  • Carefully wipe the face cushion, light blocker, and nose area, as well as the helmet body, including the headband adjustment wheel, buttons, and cables. To clean the headset, it is recommended that you first disconnect the headset from its power source. Do not use soap, harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, liquids, or aerosols to clean the headset as they may damage the unit.
  • Clean the lenses on the helmet very carefully because of its close contact with your eyes. Gently wipe the lenses with optical wipes or a microfiber lens cloth. Maintain excellent personal hygiene.
  • Always wash your hands (and face if possible) thoroughly before and after putting on the helmet. Don't forget to wipe the controllers, keyboard, mouse and other equipment before and after each session.
Disinfection devices :
There are also devices that can disinfect 99.99% of bacteria and viruses on all or part of the equipment in a few tens of seconds.
We have identified two very interesting solutions and tested one of them: UVO-JI from UvoCare: The 100% French LED UV-C disinfection solution. It allows to quickly disinfect the face cushion that goes into the tray. The only disadvantage is that the entire VR Headset cannot be inserted in it. Its advantages: the price and the speed of disinfection is less than 30 seconds.
    We were able to test this solution ourselves for several weeks in our offices and we recommend it to you for its very interesting price-quality ratio.
  • If you have a larger budget then we recommend the American Cleanbox solution specially designed for VR Headset. In addition to disinfecting the entire helmet, a waterproof product is applied which prevents any moisture from settling on the foams.
