Conditions & Virtual Reality

Virtual Reality Helps Health Conditions Like:
VR can be helpful to help treat phobias. Researchers found that VR is helpful to reduce anxiety using exposure therapy (VRET).
VR can be used with social and general anxiety. One study found that immersive virtual reality could be used as a distraction tool to reduce pain, anxiety, and help with anger management.
VR acts as a non pharmacologic form of analgesia by exerting an array of emotion-based cognitive processes on the body’s intricate pain modulation system.
VR has been demonstrated in a variety of settings to effectively decrease pain and distress associated with painful procedures.
VR does more than just distract the mind from pain, but also helps to block pain signals from reaching the brain, offering a drug-free supplement to traditional pain management
Hospice & Palliative Care
For many hospice or palliative care patients, VR technology is helping to let go of regrets about things they haven’t had the chance to do in life. For instance, a patient who always wanted to swim with whales, go on an African Safari, return to the place where you grew up or got married can simply put on a VR headset and experience the event right from their bed. While patients living with diseases may lack the stamina to take part in these experiences, virtual reality makes it very possible.
Using VR during chemotherapy treatments was found to make it pleasant. VR is a cost-effective distraction intervention to implement in the clinical setting.
Distraction is an emotion-focused coping strategy because it diverts the focus of attention away from unpleasant stimuli by manipulating the environment. Distraction interventions are effective because individuals can concentrate on pleasant or interesting stimuli instead of focusing on unpleasant symptoms. VR is classified as a distraction intervention, and can relieve physical symptoms such as pain, anxiety, nausea, and stress.
Dementia & Alzheimer’s
VR helps with reminding Alzheimer’s patients of their childhoods. It may even be possible to create customized environments for individual patients, introducing music or details that are particularly soothing.
VR may help improve the quality of life for people with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, by stimulating them to recall past memories, reduce aggressive behavior, and connect with caregivers. VR may help to physically isolate the patients from the environment that could be triggering aggressiveness.
The use of immersive VR and slow breathing/relaxation techniques can help promote bedtime relaxation and improve overall sleep quality in adolescents with good sleep and in those with insomnia symptoms.
Using meditation and relaxation apps in a 360-degree VR experience does wonders for relaxation and getting to sleep faster.
With VR, the patient is immersed in the environment that triggers memories of the trauma. This immersion is a key part of VR exposure-based therapy, which involves the patient’s ability to visualize the trauma and narrate the story to the clinician.
There are two types of VR environments used to treat PTSD. The first environment depicts specific and realistic situations. The second one uses symbolism to represent the event. This therapy does not require imagining because you are immersed in what feels real.

Provide a pathway to new communications and show how anything is possible. VR can increase motivation, facilitate interaction, develop cognitive skills, improve short-term memory, and make learning fun. Results in improving communication skills, especially in those with hearing problems. For autistic viewers it appears to facilitate social interaction.
