We apply a cognitive science approach to building games that move minds and bodies.
Whether your field is games for health, cybertherapy, business, or education, success is based on careful
design of storyline and engaging action, plus leveraging unique advantages like immersion, tracking and sensors.
Firsthand delivers robust, compelling 3D content on any platform,

Firsthand created the DeepStream 3D to help people in pain. For nearly 20 years, Firsthand has been collaborating with leading scientist, developing virtual reality treatments for pain, trauma and phobias. This research has shown that VR can be effective for many types of therapy when the technology is highly immersive, comfortable, and easy to use. The DeepStream 3D is a new type of VR display with all the right qualities for effective therapy, at an affordable price.

Take the guesswork out of Caries Risk Assessment.
CAMBRA (CAries Management By Risk Assessment) is leading a paradigm shift to move beyond the outdated focus on “remove decay and restore”, the proverbial “drill and fill” mindset. MyCAMBRA helps dentists assess patient caries risk, gives an Action Plan for success, and includes educational tools that help patients take charge of their own health.
Creating MyCAMBRA with Firsthand was an incredible, positive adventure. We confronted them with the basic ideas of Caries Management by Risk Assessment – CAMBRA – and our basic concept. It was impressive to see their knowledge and almost unlimited creativity to design, and then deliver an appealing and effective application.
