Rehabilitation is among the key directions of healthcare VR, driven by the opportunity of advanced progress monitoring, controlled remote rehabilitation, and increased patients’ motivation.
Core Features VR for Rehabilitation:
Each patient has a personal profile with medical records, therapy program and goals, session history and progress scores.
The duration and difficulty of rehabilitation exercises can be adjusted either manually by a therapist or automatically with the AI technology based on real-time feedback on user progress.
The system records a patient’s actions from motion sensors, compares data with pre-set performance metrics, analyses the patient’s progress and builds its overview over time.
- Real-time guidance and positive reinforcement
Virtual reality sessions include visual and/or audio hints and rewards (e.g., changing a virtual object’s color to guide movements, unlocking level badges, voicing encouragements).
A therapist can join a VR session as the second avatar to show movements for a patient. Alternatively, this mode can be used for patients to train independently at the same time (optimizing a therapist’s workload) or to compete against each other (raising their interest in exercising).
With portable VR equipment, patients can exercise at home while being monitored remotely by a therapist via the web. Such therapy is more cost-effective than in-person therapy and eases access to rehabilitation services for patients in rural/distant areas.
