Why VR and AR in Healthcare?

Studies show that VR can have a real documented positive effect on rehabilitation training.

 Tricking the mind into believing that you can move paralyzed limbs or visualizing memories for dementia patients, has a documented positive effect in VR. Rehabilitation happens at a faster pace with VR in the mix, compared to regular rehabilitation training.

 There are furthermore very positive indications that VR can help with anxiety- and pain relief for patients visiting the dentist or getting injections.

 VR helps the mind focus on positive scenarios and distracts the attention from the unpleasantries of the procedures.
