The approach of Virtual reality in neurorehabilitation is innovative, as it provides a simulated training of functional tasks at a higher dosage than conventional therapies. It challenges the user for problem-solving and mastering skills in real-life situations in a virtual environment, thus providing the space for harmless failing and learning. In VR, the user receives a visual feedback of the virtual environment and actions through a headmounted device, flat screen or projection system. Feedback can also be provided through other senses, such as hearing, smell, touch and vestibular system. The interaction with a virtual environment is performed by use of sensors, camera, haptic device or other hardware. According to Recovery Tech VR rehab method patients receive positive visual and audio reinforcement of the right actions in VR Rehabilitation (scores, verbal encouragements) aimed at boosting their motivation which lead to better results.
