Top 45 Multimedia Ideas in April

From Live-Streaming Fitness Classes to VR Eye Masks

— April 29, 2017 — Tech
As the April 2017 multimedia trends reveal, new technology is taking the health and wellness industry by storm. Whether it is a VR eye mask that soothes and relaxes, or an online platform that allows consumers to enjoy real fitness classes remotely, it is clear that technology is making it easier than ever for consumers to stay in shape.

One of the biggest developments in the health and wellness sector is the rise of digital fitness classes. Unlike in the past, consumers can now enjoy all the benefits of a group fitness class without ever leaving the comfort of their own home. This is possible thanks to platforms such as FORTË, BurnAlong and Fitness Blender.

As the April 2017 multimedia trends reveal, the health industry has also been revolutionized by VR technology. For instance, the Mild VR headset is designed to sooth and relax those who wear it. Similarly, Start VR recently partnered with Samsung Australia to use virtual reality to alleviate psychological stress for patients undergoing chemotherapy.
