Today’s 360 VR Buzz: Doctors Use VR To Ease Needle Phobias

This was a very interesting BUZZ that I found today and wanted to share with you.

Not many people enjoy getting injections, and for children, it can be especially traumatic, with the fear of making what would probably be only a brief scratch into something much worse. Luckily, there is a potential solution, as doctors are using virtual reality (VR) as a means to ease fears and make trips to get those injections less likely to end in trauma. It has been noted before that VR can be used to combat bot anxiety and pain, with medical personnel at the Northern General Hospital burns unit in the UK using the tech to help patients be distracted from the pain, and a pediatrician in the USA has taken this idea as something that might potentially help children. Chad Rudnick is an MD and affiliate professor at Florida Atlantic University’s Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine and founder of Boca pediatrics. He was inspired to use VR for ‘distraction therapy’ when an 8-year-old patient entered his office with a VR headset. When wearing the VR headset, the child didn’t even flinch when the injection was applied.
