Impact of virtual reality-based rehabilitation on functional outcomes in patients with acute stroke: a retrospective case-matched study.

To date, the efficacy of the virtual reality (VR) application for acute stroke compared with conventional therapy (CT) remains unclear. This retrospective study aims to assess the impact of adjuvant V...

Effects of virtual reality therapy on upper limb function after stroke and the role of neuroimaging as a predictor of a better response.

Virtual reality therapy (VRT) is an interactive intervention that induces neuroplasticity. The aim was to evaluate the effects of VRT associated with conventional rehabilitation for an upper limb afte...

Heartbeat-enhanced immersive virtual reality to treat complex regional pain syndrome.

Experiences of treadmill walking with non-immersive virtual reality after stroke or acquired brain injury - A qualitative study.

It is well known that physical activity levels for persons after stroke or acquired brain injuries do not reach existing recommendations. Walking training is highly important since the ability to walk...

The Efficacy of Immersive Virtual Reality Surgical Simulator Training for Pedicle Screw Placement: a Randomized Double-blind Controlled Trial.

To assess the efficacy of immersive virtual reality surgical simulator (IVRSS) training on pedicle screw placement (PSP) in surgical graduate students.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Treatment technique in a virtual environment which allows the participant to experience a sense of presence in an immersive, computer-generated, three-dimensional, interactive environment that minimizes avoidance behavior and facilitates emotional involvement. (from Curr Psychiatry Rep (2010) 12:298)

Restoration of functions to the maximum degree possible in a person or persons suffering from a stroke.

Using computer technology to create and maintain an environment and project a user's physical presence in that environment allowing the user to interact with it.

The diagnosis and treatment of human responses of individuals and groups to actual or potential health problems with the characteristics of altered functional ability and altered life-style. (American Nurses Association & Association of Rehabilitation Nurses. Standards of Rehabilitation Nursing Practice, 1986, p.2)

Therapeutic practices which are not currently considered an integral part of conventional allopathic medical practice. They may lack biomedical explanations but as they become better researched some (PHYSICAL THERAPY MODALITIES; DIET; ACUPUNCTURE) become widely accepted whereas others (humors, radium therapy) quietly fade away, yet are important historical footnotes. Therapies are termed as Complementary when used in addition to conventional treatments and as Alternative when used instead of conventional treatment.
