What is VR, and how is it carving a new path?

Virtual reality is a computer-generated environment that lets you experience a different reality. The user puts on a headset that fits around their eyes & ears. Then the headset visually separates you from whatever space you're physically occupying. Visuals and experiences are fed to you through the headsets. With VR you can virtually hike the Grand Canyon, tour the Louvre, experience a movie as if you are part of it, and immerse yourself in a video game without leaving your couch.
Virtual reality devices allow users to dive into the virtual world by giving them a 3D, 360-degree view of a projected digital scenery. This technology could make remote medical examinations possible, preserve the human touch of a doctor even across thousands of kilometers, and help medical students simulate procedures accurately.
This new technology will allow students and staff to witness operations as if they were wielding the scalpel. Anyone can participate in the action in real time, through VR. No matter whether you’re a promising medical student from Cape Town, Beijing or San Francisco, everyone can follow through two 360 degree cameras on how a surgeon removes a cancerous tissue from a patient.
Just as VR can be used to teach, inform and engage, it can also be used to cure. VR can escape the present and focus on an entirely new and fantastic world. With the special VR goggles patients suffering from any illness can escape the four walls of the hospital room and visit amazing landscapes in Iceland, enjoy the city views of Paris or hang out on a beach on a tropical island. VR can do wonders to the psyche or spirit of patients who have cancer, post operations, depression or even schizophrenia.
Adding to the benefits, it can give to patients, through medical VR we can make children feel like they are at home. The hospital experience can be even more stressful and mentally burdening for small children who miss their parents, friends, animals and even their homes.
VR can be used for just about anything. From training surgeons to showing a patient how her surgery will unfold before getting to the hospital. It can be used for psychological treatments and for people with addictions to show them different kinds of worlds. Imagine being able to fight PTSD, master stress relief and quell anxieties. This is just the beginning of what Virtual Reality can do.
Virtual reality is well on it’s way to changing Pharma & Healthcare, and it is quite fascinating to see the take-over happen.
Here at Dvideo, we are very excited about the prospect of embracing this change and we are looking towards the future and what VR may bring.
