Health care is already benefiting from VR

This article is a short summary of VR uses in healthcare from mental therapies to surgery training.  It emphasizes the actual need of robust studies on VR efficiency, especially in training where researchers work on links between simulation “accuracy” and people performances in real life. Scientists have used vr systems to create and control complex, multi-sensory, 3d worlds for volunteers in their labs since the 1990s. Rather as an aircraft simulator can train and test…

Researchers use virtual reality to train bystanders to respond to overdoses

This VR simulation helps people to recognize what is a overdose and how to react. This application need only a smartphone and a cardboard. Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania have developed a virtual-reality video that trains people to give overdose victims naloxone, the lifesaving opioid-reversal medicine. And a study the researchers conducted shows the virtual training works as effectively as an in-person session. Source: Researchers use virtual reality to train bystanders to respond to overdoses…
