The first Russian VR 360 project
that uses virtual reality
to help motivate people with disabilities
to be more active in real life.
VRability is the first Russian non-profit project that combines the possibilities of film and virtual reality to achieve an important social goal.
The creative group behind the project consists of professionals in documentary film-making, social advertising and organizing/developing complex technical filming solutions. We use unique 360-degree filming technology and virtual reality glasses playback (VR 360) to motivate people with disabilities be more active in real life by letting them experience new virtual experiences.

The project works on changing attitudes towards people with disabilities and developing innovative technological solutions for social problems.

About




VRability is the first Russian documentary virtual reality project created with the use of 360-degree video for the purpose of helping solve social problems. It is also the first project in the world that presents the surrounding environment in VR 360-degrees from the perspective of someone in a wheelchair.

A series of both full-length VR-films and independent VR-experiences will be available via smartphone apps, online on our website, and on special VR-playback equipment.

We hope that our project will:

  • motivate people with disabilities to find out more about social and sports activities available to them; to explore the world and new interesting places that are accessible by both people with or without disability.
  • create opportunities for the psychological and emotional rehabilitation of people with recent traumas and those temporarily or continuously suffering from loss of mobility, especially those who require not only physical rehabilitation and help adapting to new life conditions, but emotional support as well.
  • will allow a wide audience to become closer acquainted with the world of someone in a wheelchair and their limitless abilities through the immersion effect (total immersion) and/or watching our project's films and shorts.

The VRability team is open to production proposals for commercial VR 360 films and shorts. Proceeds from our commercial activities will be used for implementing and developing our non-profit project for people with disabilities.
We invite organizations that work with people with disabilities, as well as commercial and social services to participate in the project and help us reach our common goal of creating a more comfortable and accessible environment for everyone.

We invite both organizations of persons with disabilities, as well as commercial and social services to participate in a project to create a more comfortable environment consisting of all the people.

Film about Maxim Kiselev in 360 VR:


Maksim Kiselev's father was in the military and worked on damage control and recovery after the Chernobyl disaster in 1987. At two years old, Maksim became very ill and could no longer walk. The family moved from Chernobyl region to Khabarovsk, where Maksim underwent lengthy medical treatment, including a number of operations. In 1998 he moved to Moscow. He graduated from high school with honors, and in 2014 graduated magna cum laude from the Russian State University of Physical Education, Sports, Youth and Tourism.

Maksim dreamt of taking dance lessons. But because of his health problems, he decided to take up wheelchair dancing. Competing wasn't on his mind at the time - it was important for him to undergo social and physical rehabilitation through dance. 2007 became a turning-point year in the young athlete's life – the first time Maksim really showed himself as a potential athlete. His first large competition was the Eurasia Wheelchair Dance Championship, where Maksim made it to the finals. Since then, he's won multiple Russian and international dance championships, and received the International Philanthropy award for outstanding achievements among people with disabilities in arts and culture.

Since January 2010, he is the first and only athlete in the world who does pairs wheelchair dancing on ice. He was awarded a special “Surpassing Yourself” prize by the Figure Skating Federation of Russia. In 2011, Maksim became interested in wheelchair tennis, a field in which he has also been quite successful. Another one of his hobbies is photography.

He participated in Evgeniy Pluschenko's show “Ice Kings”. In 2008, he acted in “Weapons” TV series.

Maksim tries to use his successes to attract children and young people with disabilities to dance and other sports. It's important for him to show that physical limitations do not limit one's creativity. We, people with disabilities, have limitless creative potential. An illness is not a reason to give up, it's just a slightly different lifestyle.

Sport is a way to realize one's potential, both in sports and social work. It helps develop a will to win and a desire to work on yourself and your own physical well-being. He lives by the motto: “Limited physical ability is a stepping stone to unlimited creative potential and achievement”. “Invasport” - sport for people with disabilities – is sport without limitations.

Support Our Project

Dear friends, at this point of the project, your support will be an incredible help. We are trying to minimize spending on production and have already purchased most of the necessary equipment, but logistics and rental of other film equipment are still a big problem. If you like what we're doing, we would be very grateful for any help. All of the wonderful people who have helped our project take off will be mentioned in the films' end titles. We thank you in advance for your support!
