 Virtual Reality Interface Allow You to Touch, Smell and Hear the Virtual World

The virtual reality interface devices enable the reorganization of neural networks in the brain of patients with chronic stroke and cerebral palsy, thereby improving hand function and other skills, contributing to their quality of life.

Virtual reality interface devices can also activate visual, vestibular and proprioceptive systems, which help control body posture and improve balance function. Dr. Valeska Gatica-Rojas, Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Talca, Chile summarized the application of various virtual reality interface devices for the rehabilitation of patients with neurological diseases and balance dysfunction. His findings were published in Neural Regeneration Research (Vol. 9, No. 8, 2014).
