Cedars-Sinai creates app for Apple's Vision Pro headset

Los Angeles-based Cedars-Sinai has created a new behavioral health app for Apple Vision Pro, the tech company's first 3D camera headset. 

The app, Xaia, which stands for eXtended-Reality Artificially Intelligent Ally, provides patients with a type of therapy whereby they can use a computer program that talks to them, according to a Feb. 2 news release from the health system. 

This therapy is designed to be relaxing and takes place in calming settings, like by a creek or on a sunny beach. Patients can also practice deep breathing and meditation during these sessions, according to the news release.

The app was designed by Cedars-Sinai clinicians and artificial intelligence experts. 

Boston Children's Hospital also launched an app for the new headset as well. This app, dubbed CyranoHealth, generates an immersive training experience for nurses and other healthcare workers.
