In this use of virtual reality, the patient is inside a virtual world where he has to move like a bird (for example). Theses moves are a part a the reeducation program. It is noticed that the patient feels less pain during VR session than during a traditional one. Créée en octobre 2015, KineQuantum veut transformer les usages de la kinésithérapie active où le patient réalise seul des mouvements. Grâce à des casques de réalité…"KineQuantum veut améliorer la kinésithérapie grâce à la réalité virtuelle"
BuildVR has made Solis solution to help elderly to travel with augmented reality. Five kinds of videos are available, linked to particular therapies. People in the experiment is not alone, but be accompanied by medical staff. Already implemented by many aged care facilities across the country, Solis is an easy-to-use virtual reality application created for the aged care industry. Utilising visual navigation, dual screen accessibility and delivering 5 video categories relevant to aged care residents, Solis…"Virtual reality for the elderly"
Sometimes, simplest uses are the best … Renderer is an extraordinary idea to bring “spaces” to people with a difficulty to move. Virtual Reality, and in this case 360° videos, is the best tool to do it. Rendever gives older adults a window to the parts of the world that they’re missing.

Floreo is a typical use of virtual reality to help autistic children to communicate. Floreo, a venture and NIH backed startup, leverages the power of virtual reality to provide safe, immersive, repeatable, and affordable social and communication therapy that is fun and engaging for the user, while allowing a supervising adult to monitor and track the user’s progress. We are currently piloting Floreo at a special education school for children on the autism spectrum,…"Floreo for social and communication therapy that is immersive and realistic"
Molecular biology produces huge amounts of data in the post-genomic era. This includes data describing metabolic mechanisms and pathways, structural genomic organization, patterns of regulatory regions; proteomics, transcriptomics, and metabolomics. On the one hand, analysis of this data uses essentially the methods and concepts of computer science; on the other hand, the range of biological tasks solved by researchers determines the range and scope of the data. Integrative Bioinformatics is a new area of research…"From Virtual Reality to Immersive Analytics in Bioinformatics Burlingame, California, 30 Jan 2018"
This operation has been done with Microsoft Hololense. The AR glasses facilitates access to data like X-rays, scanners and MRIs thanks to uses of 3D reconstructed models directly projected on the patient. It is also possible to prepare the operation with these technologies and, during the surgical intervention, the surgeon could be “assisted” by colleagues. In french : Replay : une opération chirurgicale en réalité augmentée Doctors at the Avicenne de Bobigny hospital (Ile-de-France) have…"France performs world’s first virtual reality surgery"
