Virtual reality therapy is a big thing in mental healthcare. It’s not new; virtual reality exposure therapy has been used to treat phobias, PTSD, and other anxiety disorders for years.
VR exposure therapy allows people to face their fear in a safe environment. For example, if someone has a fear of heights, they can go on various floors of a building and carry out various tasks that expose them to the fear. Over time, the fear disappears or diminishes to a manageable level.
As VR and AR gain traction in the medical world, there will be many potential applications. The great thing about VR is that it could be used to decentralize healthcare, allowing more people more access.
