Virtual Reality Programs
Virtual Reality (VR) provides clients with an immersive sensory experience incorporated into games that enables clients to practice movements or skills in an environment that is safe but also engaging and challenging. The use of VR is complementary to traditional rehabilitation therapies. VR has been found to improve balance and functional mobility. A 12-week VR program for people with Parkinson’s resulted in greater improvement in balance and gain when compared to traditional physical therapy (Feng, et.al, 2019).
VR is also founded to be helpful in the rehabilitation journey for people with upper arm paresis following a stroke. The goal of our VR program is to promote active client participation that will transfer into your daily life.
