If you visit National Center for Telehealth & Technology (T2) headquarters, don’t be surprised if you see the following: a psychologist navigating through a virtual Middle Eastern market in Second Life; a uniformed soldier walking inside a giant, stationary hamster ball; a group of software developers gathered around an Android tablet trying out the latest T2 mobile application; or a technician setting up computer stations inside a modified cargo container.
As the primary Department of Defense entity using technology for psychological health and traumatic brain injury (TBI) care, T2 is at the nexus of technology, health care and innovation.
We research, develop and deploy solutions with cutting edge platforms such as virtual worlds, virtual reality, web applications, mobile telehealth and mobile applications.
And the greatest advantage our center has is its people.
Knowledge and skills possessed by our psychologists, developers, researchers and technical staff enables us to fulfill the T2 mission: use technology to help deliver psychological health and traumatic brain injury care to improve the lives of service members, veterans and their families.
