What is Virtual Reality
Virtual Reality (VR) is the use of computer technology to create a simulated environment. Unlike traditional user interfaces, VR places the user inside an experience. Instead of viewing a screen in front of them, users are immersed and able to interact with 3D worlds. By simulating as many senses as possible, such as vision, hearing, touch, even smell, the computer is transformed into a gatekeeper to this artificial world. The only limits to near-real VR experiences are the availability of content and cheap computing power.
Virtual reality (VR) is a trending, widely accessible, contemporary technology of increasing utility to biomedical and health applications. The use of VR technology in rehabilitation derives from research in computational neuroscience involving motor learning mechanisms. VR provides real-time visual feedback for movements, thereby increasing engagement in enjoyable rehabilitation tasks. VR provides alternative rehabilitation programs with new and effective therapeutic tools that can improve the functional abilities of a wide variety of rehabilitation patients in a neurological setting.
