Virtual Reality has many applications in healthcare. It helps treat patients who suffer from brain damage, severe trauma or phobias. For example, a patient who fears flying can put on a Virtual Reality Visor and reproduce the experience of flying in an aeroplane. Eventually they can increase their tolerance or potentially lose their fears altogether.

Virtual Reality can also be used to direct the attention of patients who have to undergo painful treatments, such as those recovering from burns. Such patients wearing a Virtual Reality Visor could be emersed into a virtual arctic world, surrounded by snow and ice, to 'cool down' the brain while undergoing treatment. This distraction can help relieve some of the pain that they experience during treatment.

The addition of virtual reality and gaming systems to stroke rehabilitation programs can improve arm strength and motor skills, according to research published April 7 in Stroke: Journal of the American Heart Association.

According to the study’s lead author Gustavo Saposnik, MD, of the St. Michael’s Hospital at the University of Toronto, “Virtual reality gaming therapy may provide an affordable, enjoyable and effective alternative to intensify treatment and promote motor recovery after stroke.”
