Virtual reality is a powerful medium that not only has the potential to "transport" viewers to alternate worlds, but also create a positive impact in their mental and physical health. Vivid immersive experiences have been shown to reduce pain in patients undergoing medical treatments and also ease their mindset going into major procedures. VR Playhouse CEO/co-founder Christina Heller will discuss how merging great creative and practical applications can integrate VR into real people's lives and make their often times painful and emotionally turbulent health woes into magical experiences, ultimately shifting their overall memories.
Attendees will learn how leveraging the powerful medium of virtual reality can provide a unique opportunity for patients to escape both the physical pain and mental tumult of illnesses and serious medical treatments. They will hear about early test experiences with dynamic VR experiences in healthcare settings and how patients are reacting to the unique therapeutic experiences.
