Abstract

The use of virtual reality (VR) is now a days not limited to pleasure. The use of VR for rehabilitation is one of these applications. With the use of specific VR, rehabilitation of patients suffering from neuronal and motor disorders could possibly be improved. But does the use of virtual environments and virtual reality actually improve neuronal and muscular rehabilitation? Studies regarding the rehabilitation of stroke patients, cerebral palsy patients and spinal cord injury patients using VR for rehabilitation showed that VR application led to an improvement of motor function and neuroplastic changes. VR therapy also showed effects in healthy subjects. These effects caused by VR therapy suggest that the use of VR therapy in stroke patients, cerebral palsy patients and spinal cord injury patients improves the rehabilitation of the patients.
