Virtual reality’s role in medical detox featured at CES 2020

Jan 10, 2020 16:13 IST

Virual Reality is making its way into the world of healthcare to facilitate the process of recovery from substance abuse. The Kyle ER hospital in Texas provides medical detox facilities in collaboration with Cynergi Health Partners to get rid of anxiety and panic linked to withdrawal symptoms. Their virtual reality programme was unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show in Vegas. To make the process of de-addiction smooth, they've made use of imagery and sound through VR and the technology can be used simultaneously with the medical treatment. VR will be able to provide a realistic environment for patients to relax or deal with stress during the therapy.
