Health & Safety Warings
These health & safety warnings are periodically updated for accuracy and completeness. Please ensure that all users of the headset read the warnings below carefully before using Intugame VR to reduce the risk of personal injury, discomfort or property damage.
Before Using Intugame VR:
● Read and follow all setup and operating instructions provided with the desktop client.
● We recommend seeing a doctor before using any virtual reality headset if you are pregnant, elderly, have pre-existing binocular vision abnormalities or psychiatric disorders, or suffer from a heart condition or other serious medical condition.
Seizures: Some people (about 1 in 4000) may have severe dizziness, seizures, epileptic seizures or blackouts triggered by light flashes or patterns, and this may occur while they are watching TV, playing video games or experiencing virtual reality, even if they have never had a seizure or blackout before or have no history of seizures or epilepsy. Such seizures are more common in children and young people under the age of 20. Anyone who has had a seizure, loss of awareness, or other symptom linked to an epileptic condition should see a doctor before using Intugame VR.
Children: This product should not be used by children under the age of 13. Adults should monitor children (age 13 and older) who are using or have used Intugame VR for any of the symptoms described below, and should limit the time children spend using the app and ensure they take breaks during use. Prolonged use should be avoided, as this could negatively impact hand-eye coordination, balance, and multi-tasking ability. Adults should monitor children closely during and after use of the headset for any decrease in these abilities. General Instructions & Precautions: You should always follow these instructions and observe these precautions while using the headset to reduce the risk of injury or discomfort:
● Use Only In A Safe Environment: The app produces an
immersive virtual reality experience when used with a virtual reality headset that distracts you from and completely blocks your view of your actual surroundings. Always be aware of your surroundings when using Intugame VR and remain seated at all times. Take special care to ensure that you are not near other people, objects, stairs, balconies, windows, furniture, or other items that you can bump into or knock down when using—or immediately after using—the app. Do not handle sharp or otherwise dangerous objects while using the app. Never wear a virtual reality headset in situations that require attention, such as walking, bicycling, or driving.
● Make sure your headset is level and secured comfortably on your head, and that you see a single, clear image.
● Ease into the use of the app to allow your body to adjust; use for only a few minutes at a time at first, and only increase the amount of time using the headset gradually as you grow accustomed to virtual reality. Looking around when first entering virtual reality can help you adjust to any small differences between your real-world movements and the resulting virtual reality experience.
● A comfortable virtual reality experience requires an unimpaired sense of motion and balance. Do not use the headset when you are tired, need sleep, are under the influence of alcohol or drugs, are hung-over, have digestive problems, are under emotional stress or anxiety, or when suffering from cold, flu, headaches, migraines, or earaches, as this can
increase your susceptibility to adverse symptoms.
● Do not use Intugame VR while in a moving vehicle such as a car, bus, or train, as this can increase your susceptibility to adverse symptoms.
● Take at least a 10 to 15 minute break every 30 minutes, even if you don’t think you need it. Each person is different, so take more frequent and longer breaks if you feel discomfort. You should decide what works best.
● Immediately discontinue use if anyone using Intugame VR experiences 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; lightheadedness; discomfort or pain in the head or eyes; drowsiness; fatigue; or any symptoms similar to motion sickness.
● Just as with the symptoms people can experience after they disembark a cruise ship, symptoms of virtual reality exposure can persist and become more apparent hours after use. These postuse
symptoms can include the symptoms above, as well as excessive drowsiness and decreased ability to multi-task. These symptoms may put you at an increased risk of injury when engaging in normal activities in the real world. ● Do not drive, operate machinery, or engage in other visually or physically demanding activities that have potentially serious consequences (i.e., activities in which experiencing any symptoms could lead to death, personal injury, or damage to property), or other activities that require unimpaired balance and hand-eye coordination (such as playing sports or riding a bicycle, etc.) until you have fully recovered from any symptoms.
● Do not use the headset until all symptoms have completely subsided for several hours. Make sure you have properly configured Intugame VR before resuming use.
● Be mindful of the type of content that you were using prior to the onset of any symptoms because you may be more prone to symptoms based upon the content being used.
● See a doctor if you have serious and/or persistent symptoms. Repetitive Stress Injury: Playing video games can make your muscles, joints or skin hurt. If any part of your body becomes tired or sore while playing, or if you feel symptoms such as tingling, numbness, burning or stiffness, stop and rest for several hours before playing again. If you continue to have any of the above
symptoms or other discomfort during or after play, stop playing and see a doctor.
