In this study we aimed to determine whether the additional rehabilitation with 3D virtual reality headsets provide any functional contribution to conventional rehabilitation techniques of ...
Investigating how neuropathic limb pain, including phantom limb pain or complex regional pain syndrome, is affected by virtual reality. While several studies have looked into virtual reali...
Gait disorder, imbalance, and fatigue are the most frequently reported complaints in Multiple Sclerosis (MS), a chronic neurodegenerative disease. The first symptoms in patients with MS ar...
In this study, the investigators examine the cognitive load and performance of a laparoscopic procedure in immersive virtual reality and controlled virtual reality in a randomized, control...
Virtual Reality allows the integration of both cognitive and motor rehabilitation in a more ecologically valid context. The purpose of this study is to determine whether this methodology h...
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...
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...
To develop and test a new immersive digital technology for complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) that combines principles from mirror therapy and immersive virtual reality and the latest research from...
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...
To assess the efficacy of immersive virtual reality surgical simulator (IVRSS) training on pedicle screw placement (PSP) in surgical graduate students.
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.
