Apple has issued a warning stating that using its mixed reality (MR) headset, Vision Pro, with certain medical conditions may pose an increased "risk of injury or discomfort." In a support document, the tech giant strongly advises individuals with specific health concerns to consult with a medical provider before using the Apple Vision Pro.
The listed medical conditions include a risk of falls or seizures, serious heart conditions, migraines or chronic headaches, dizziness or vertigo, eye or vision conditions (such as binocular vision conditions), psychological conditions, inner ear conditions, and seizures, among others. Apple recommends additional caution for pregnant women, as using the device during pregnancy may heighten the risk of nausea or loss of balance.
In cases where a medical provider has confirmed the safety of using Apple Vision Pro, the company suggests using the device in a seated position, starting with a less immersive experience, and taking frequent breaks during short increments of use.
The Apple Vision Pro is priced starting at $3,499 with 256GB of storage, and pre-orders for the device have already begun. The headset will be available at all US Apple Store locations and through the US Apple Store online. Apple's precautionary advice underscores the importance of user safety and responsible usage, especially for individuals with specific health conditions.
