Yatek is on a mission to help millions of people suffering from social anxiety, by enabling psychologists to treat social anxiety with VR-based exposure therapy. The common practice for treating social anxiety is by gradual and repetitive exposure to situations causing the fear. Such exposure therapy is typically assigned as homework for the patient to do on his/her own time, often with poor results due to a high drop-out rate or exercises done improperly. Yatek is redefining exposure therapy through a virtual reality-based training tool with customizable virtual simulations of social interactions and continuous quantification of patients' progress, allowing for patient-centric and individual treatment, and for the therapist to supervise and adjust exercises carried out by the patient Our solution is grounded in years of research and we combine neuroscience with VR & AI applications to develop 3D environments and interactions with human avatars. We are also developing our own proprietary hardware that allows the patient to navigate in a user-friendly and intuitive manner through virtual social situations, without moving in physical space. We are three founders of Yatek, all with a burning passion for using cutting-edge technology to solve problems that really matter. Tackling mental health is beneficial to every single part of society, but in our opinion, mental illness has been underprioritized and underfunded on the global health agenda for way too long. We believe that now, more than ever, there needs to be a shift in perception, where mental health must be seen with just as much importance as physical health. Our mission is to let therapists treat more patients in less time, with increased quality, to help bridge the massive gap between the demand for mental health care therapy and the current capacity of therapists to meet demand.
