How virtual reality therapy is treating pain in West Sussex (video)

“Horsham District Council is the first council in the UK to introduce a new form of virtual reality therapy for those with long term medical conditions. The council’s Community Link team is championing a virtual reality experience for the benefit of people with dementia and those living with long term medical conditions.

The therapy is based on the use of a headset which creates a virtual reality environment for users, helping them become immersed within a variety of different scenes.

Chosen scenes include experiences such as starlit skies, forests full of animals, dolphins swimming and nostalgic “days out” to beaches with the sound of the sea lapping on the shore.”
