The latest product of innovators and scientist is the virtual reality, or VR for short, and it is referring to a kind of computer technology which can be operated by using a software that can function by generating any realistic human sensations, images and sounds. Virtual reality or VR is designed by its inventor to replicate the environment of the real world in an imaginary setting, which can simulate the user’s physical presence within the said environment, and that can definitely be done by letting or enabling the user to interact with the space provided and the objects that is visible on the projectors, display screens or any other tools and devices that are designed, specifically for such innovation. The functions of a VR or a virtual reality, enables its user to look around the artificial world, interact with the features and items that is visible on the screen or in the googles, and move in the artificial world, and it can also create artificial sensory experiences, such as sight, hearing, touch, and smell. Some of the common accessories and devices used for virtual reality, includes a projector screen, computer monitor, a virtual reality headset which is also known as HMD or head-mounted display, and the latest one, is the head-mounted googles with a screen in the eyes.
Virtual reality is being used in various areas of healthcare, like diagnosis, surgery, rehab, treatment and counselling, and this certain technology became very essential and important to the lives of the aspiring professional healthcare providers, such as doctors, paramedics, dentists, and for their patients, as well. Individuals who aspires to be a professional doctor and medical schools are using the VR as a means of instruction and education, which enables the medical students to gain knowledge and understanding about the human body by interacting in the artificial environment. Several other professionals and individuals who are using this innovation, includes paramedics, in which the students were given a scenario that can help them learn lifesaving skills without placing themselves and their patients at risks; the patients, in which this innovation can help them acquire knowledge about positive lifestyle choices, and to make positive changes about their health, and this is called as preventative medicine; PTSD or post-traumatic stress disorder patients, in which the patients can gain knowledge and skills in dealing with their phobias and the symptoms of their condition; the architects and construction industry, in which it enables them to design and test new buildings in an artificial environment; and the dentists, in which the students are shown a 3D set of teeth with a virtual dental chair. To summarize the benefits obtained by the users of VR, it includes less consumption of money, safety, realistic, efficiency, the chance to use it remotely, the ability to re-use the technology on a regular basis, or refresh of skills, and less consumption of time.
