Physical Therapy using Virtual Reality


The breadth of physical therapy implementation can be expanded with VR, which can be used remotely and provide physical therapists with valuable data to improve care.


Create a VR app that allows a physical therapist to stream immersive video to patients would improve the breadth of physical therapy applications. Patients would follow the exercise or routine and while the VR platform displays spatial and telemetry data back to the PT in real time on a dashboard. A second PT can then use the data received from patients to work 1-to-1 with patients who need extra help.
