Giving Back Is In Our DNA

At 900lbs, we are incredibly grateful for opportunities that result in a positive impact for our community and the great clients that we serve. Empathy is at the heart of our culture. We believe strongly in giving back to those that give us and our communities so much in return.

900lbs recently had the pleasure of partnering with Cook Children’s Medical Center of Fort Worth to deliver a truly unique virtual reality experience for its patients, bringing positive light to those children dealing with difficult health conditions. It is the optimal technology for immersing users in digital environments and transporting out far outside their physical presence.

“A study by Schneider and Workman….82% of the children stated that treatment with virtual reality was better than previous treatments and that they would like to use VR during future treatments…patients demonstrating at least 50% reduction in their pain intensity scores.”

For Cook Children’s, we reformatted and customized Soccer Blocker – our virtual reality soccer game that allows children step far outside of the Hospital’s walls into a futuristic training facility.

900lbs is thankful part of this incredible event. We are excited to continue partnering with Cook Children’s and others to provide inspiration and hope to those in need.

“We are excited to have such a unique event for our patients and families at Cook Children’s. 900lbs has been so thoughtful and generous in the planning process; we are grateful for our community members who give back! This experience certainly brightened so many faces, so thank you 900lbs for your time, generosity, and commitment!” – Jillian Mitchell, Community Program Coordinator, Cook Children’s.
