How to use Virtual Reality and health information

Please read this information before viewing the Virtual Reality experiences

To enjoy the best experience, you will need a good internet speed and the use of a virtual reality enabled headset or smartphone

Please ensure that you read and understand this information before viewing the virtual reality experiences.

Virtual-reality (VR) headsets and related types of technology can cause “cybersickness,” which has symptoms similar to motion sickness.

Immediately discontinue use if you experience any of the following symptoms: seizures; loss of awareness; eye strain; eye or muscle twitching; involuntary movements; altered, blurred, or double vision or other visual abnormalities; dizziness; disorientation; impaired balance; impaired hand-eye coordination; excessive sweating; increased salivation; nausea; light headedness; discomfort or pain in the head or eyes; drowsiness; fatigue; or any symptoms similar to motion sickness.

Around 1 in 4000 people may have severe dizziness, seizures, epileptic seizures or blackouts triggered by light flashes or patterns and this may occur while you are experiencing virtual reality even if you have no previous history of these conditions. Fluid Productions and Allerdale Borough Council accept no responsibility for any symptoms, injury or discomfort caused by viewing the virtual reality experiences.
