Virtual Reality – the future that is already on our doorstep. How can VR make a difference to the patient experience?
The benefits VR will bring to some care settings are phenomenal. Whilst there are (currently) limitations to its uses for patients (predominantly around short term or intermittan use), yet agin, we witness that the impact of what we see on how we feel, is a powerful asset to be harvested. If we can generate any sense of joy, calm or peace through the supply of a visual experience, we can truly benefit the care recipients’ well being, and greatly improve the overall patient experience.
