EAST HARTFORD, CT (January, 2011) – VRSim announced the first SimSpray™ unit has been installed at the Richland Correctional Institution in Mansfield, Ohio.
“I am happy to put our first spray paint simulation with the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections (ODRC). We believe that the use of virtual reality provides benefits to the ODRC vocational training programs. To allow inmates to develop skills that have real world applicability where they can be gainfully employed is a huge benefit to the ODRC and society. VRSim is excited to be a small part of that process,” said Matthew Wallace, CEO and President of VRSim. ODRC has helped over 12,000 inmates complete career-technical (vocational) trades training.
SimSpray is a cost effective, portable, stand-alone training appliance designed to augment traditional educational methods. Instructors get objective feedback from the system while trainees have the ability to do more repetitions without the added costs of materials, consumables, and energy. Using SimSpray, students hold a custom spray gun and wear a helmet while working in an interactive, computer generated environment. Painters learn better techniques, faster and with less waste.
