huvr and health

Leave a comment


As a graduate student in biobehavioral health I get to read innovative research on virtual reality and its future. Today I am sharing a video clip from huvr board. Although reports are coming out that it is a hoax, it is still truly awesome (and looks like so much fun). I envision the impact that it can have in the medical world – specifically within rehabilitation clinics. For instance, the board may have the capacity to help assist limbs with limited mobility. This gentle, low-impact option could allow for range of motion exercises that help the patient cultivate higher moving independence. What do you think? What other directions can we start taking medical robotics and virtual reality? Leave comments below or e-mail me at!

With love,
