Virtual Reality As a Mental Health Therapy Platform | Health Care Social Media And Digital Health | Scoop.it
In healthcare, Virtual Reality (VR) is often referred to one of 3 types of systems: a VR environment presented on a flat screen, a head-mounted display and a room-based system such as CAVE. Although all three systems are very different, they have one common feature - the ability to introduce stereoscopic depth that creates the illusion that all objects we see exist in a virtual space. It leads to the VR use as a research tool and its broad application to psychotherapy, sports psychology and social interaction.
