Novel Applications of Virtual Reality Interventions in Rehabilitation

Rapid changes in technology will have profound effects on the delivery rehabilitation services. As the costs of high quality virtual reality systems such as the HTC Vive continue to decline, therapists will have an incredible set of new tools to develop innovative and effective treatments for a variety of neurologic and orthopedic impairments.
Dr. James Thomas will provide an overview of technology, clinical applications, and current evidence for the use of virtual reality systems in clinical practice.
This talk will focus on the development of a suite of virtual reality games for treating low back pain with a review of the processes involved in harnessing the power of the virtual reality environments to best obtain the treatment goals.
This will include a review of the advances in the hardware and software available for the clinician and clinical scientist.
Additionally, the most recent evidence from the extant literature on the efficacy of virtual reality intervention for treatments of musculoskeletal injuries will be presented.
