VR and Healthcare: Where is this cutting-edge technology taking us?

 In Videos, Virtual Reality

Its possible by now, you have probably heard of some of the beneficial uses of virtual reality…

It is changing the way businesses market to their clients, the way gamers play their games and even the way some industries educate their employees. That’s right. Industries such as the healthcare industry have now discovered the value of incorporating virtual reality into their systems as well.

Virtual stimulation technology has come a long way, and it doesn’t appear to be coming to a halt anytime soon…

Integrating VR into healthcare

Combining visual stimulation with force-feedback technology is incredibly valuable to healthcare workers, such as surgeons. It offers practicing surgeons both the visual and the physical feedback they might feel when practicing a procedure. But, beyond just the realistic experience that it offers surgeons for practicing surgery, VR is also a much more cost-effective, engaging, and safe method. It is a useful tool in training and the clinical education of other healthcare professionals such as nurses and counselors.

VR provides a risk-free environment in which healthcare professionals can practice life-saving procedures. This is especially useful when practicing uncommon procedures. But, they still gain the experience of performing it in real life. Furthermore, VR can also be used in educating patients in the healthcare industry…

Why patients?

VR and patients

Well, sometimes it is hard for a doctor to get their point across. For example, when explaining that eating unhealthy can cause substantial weight gain. However, technology such as VR could allow a doctor to show a patient a digital version of what they might look like in ten years…

Or, it could help teach a patient how to overcome a fear such as a fear of heights. VR can give the patient the experience of whatever it is that causes them such great fear. But, in a much more comfortable environment. Then, the doctor or counselor know how to better help them overcome this fear.
