Information about the project
Ferox Virtual Reality
In this project, we investigate a novel medical rehabilitation system for curing varieties of phobia by creating different virtual environments using VR technique. Here the idea is to create natural environments using VR technology and in addition to that, a head-mounted display (HMD) will be utilized to provide more realistic feelings to phobia patients. Moreover, for manipulation and navigation purposes the commercially available KinectTM motion sensor will be utilized. In addition to that for the evaluation and monitoring of the patient’s response to the virtual environments, a separate screen will be installed which will be directly connected to the VR control system. The investigators of this project believe that utilizing VR technology can significantly improve the treatment methods and can play a vital role in reducing the stress and anxiety thus enhancing the quality of patient’s life.
