The prevalence of cognitive degenerations like multiple sclerosis has been increasing worldwide. Approximately 2.8 billion are affected globally. But with revolutionized technology, it is now possible to treat it effectively.
Emerging technologies like virtual reality has managed to elevate regular experiences of any ecosystem to a virtual yet real-time experience making users explore various 3-D domains. Research has now found the relevance of virtual reality technology in health too.
Scientists from Kessler foundation, in their authored research paper, have strongly recommended the use of virtual technology that enhances the results of traditional therapy to treat multiple sclerosis. According to the researchers, it is a “conceptual framework” that helps patients to include traditional therapy in their daily life, which was not possible earlier. This technology augments the benefit received from physical exercises and cognitive rehabilitation, enabling faster recovery.
With VR, traditional cognitive therapy has managed to produce better motor outcomes and improved neural activation. There are added advantages of flexibility, diversity, device control, and greater adaptability.
