Safety Information About Your Headset….

  • VR headsets shouldn’t be used by children under the age of 13 years old and it is important that children aged 13 and over are supervised by adults.
  • Please do not use the headset whilst in a moving vehicle e.g. car, bus, train. This can increase your chances of adverse symptoms.
  • Always remain seated when using the product.
  • It’s advised to take a 10-15 minute break every half an hour, even if you believe you do not need it. If you feel you need a longer break, it’s advised to have one!
