Summary
Virtual reality is an artificial environment that is created with software and presented to the user in such a way that the user suspends belief and accepts it as a real environment. This video shows an interesting use of virtual reality in the healing of patient’s wounds. University of Washington researchers Hunter Hoffman and David Patterson have designed a virtual reality game called Snowworld to keep the patients occupied during painful wound cleaning or physical therapy. Reports suggest that patients report lesser pain while playing Snowworld and MRI shows that it reduces the brain pain signals.
