XR solutions have the ability to transform healthcare, from clinician to patient. VR training allows for low-risk training for high-risk scenarios and is a platform for detailed and personalized exposure to procedures, environments and equipment. Think practice surgeries, tours of hospital environments or witnessing complicated medical procedures up-close. 

For patients, 360° VR content can be used as a distraction during medical procedures for a less painful experience or simply to make them feel more comfortable during procedures such as chemotherapy or dialysis. Immersive content is also effective for rehabilitation therapy for sufferers of traumatic brain injury or stroke and also for patients of dementia to trigger memories or emotions. It’s possible to transport the patient to a golf course, a peaceful park, church or even letting them take a seat at a kitchen table to stimulate appetite.

With the help of VR headsets, it is easier to tune out of the present situation and be transported to a more exciting or calmer environment which allows patients to be at ease. Read more…
