Apple Promotes Veterans App Healium

Today is Veterans Day, and Apple is celebrating it by posting information about an augmented reality app that’s helping veterans cope with anxiety.

The Cupertino-based company has shared a story about how US Navy Commander Steve Mills use Healium to deal with anxiety. In another part of the U.S., Sarah Hill, a TV journalist was experiencing panic attacks that came from reporting tragedies and violence for around twenty years.

Sarah collaborated with licensed psychologist Dr. Jeff Tarrant and they came up with a program using electrodes and a laptop. Then, she quit journalism and began work at a veterans organization, where AR and VR technology helped them relax.

Hill went back to Tarrant and developed an AR-based app, which was Healium. The stress-relieving system then made its way to the App Store.

Healium costs $4.99 at the App Store. Interested users can try the app and download it today.
