Virtual Reality Exposure Therapy

Also, therapy is highly compatible with virtual reality.

It treats victims of brain damage and other neuropsychological disorders. It helps them recover from trauma and learn how to continue with normal life. VR is used for treating phobias more each day. Patients who want to treat their anxiety or panic disorders with exposure therapy can certainly find a solution with VR. Doctors put patients in a computer-generated domain to experience the diverse stimuli related to their phobia. This method treats every type of phobias. Similar treatments are employed for treating PTSD in veterans.

The psychologist Fernando Tarnogol, from Argentina, created a software platform named Phobos that utilizes virtual reality to treat anxieties and extreme fears like arachnophobia (fear of spiders) and acrophobia (fear of heights). This platform mimics the triggering situations in a controlled and safe virtual environment. Fernando hopes that people in the future, who suffer from phobias and anxieties, will use virtual reality low-cost and safe complement to traditional exposure therapy.

Surgical Theater and Phobos are one of the most important practices for virtual reality. A VR headset may not save lives, but it could help someone who can.
