The VREACH mission is to use the opportunities provided by virtual reality to make the work of functional specialists effective, allowing them to save both material and emotional resources. VREACH also wants to promote public awareness of the rehabilitation process of cognitive abilities, making the sessions and processes transparent to the patient's child's family.
VREACH sees rehabilitation as an innovative, technology-based modern process that serves faster patient progress, involves the patient's family in the rehabilitation process, as well as helps to facilitate the work of functional specialists.

The beginnings of the VREACH team can be traced back to September 2017, when audiologist Marina Petrakova and engineer Lukas Dzalbs started cooperation within the framework of DF LAB product commercialization course.
Although it was a time when the use of virtual reality in autism therapy had not yet been studied, the team decided to continue working. With the consent of the patients' parents, Marina actively tested the VREACH concept in her private practice, which became the basis for further development of the methodology.
In July 2020, VREACH was admitted to the Overkill Ventures Acceleration Program.
In October 2019, VREACH won the main prize in the Riga IFF Goes VR 2019 hackathon.
