Abstract

Virtual Reality (VR) has finally found its way to be used in the healthcare industry, covering many different areas such as medical training, marketing, patient education, psychotherapy and physiotherapy, and many others. The need to develop increasingly personalized technology to be used during the rehabilitation process is extremely important. Therefore, the VR4NeuroPain solution aims to cover the unique influence that it obtains from the VR applied to the rehabilitation area, creating unique and virtual spaces where patients with neuropathic pain can be submitted to their therapy sessions, not only in hospitals and clinics, but also at home. The VR4NeuroPain system monitors electrophysiological data in real time, and consists of the following components: Virtual Reality Interface, Plataform and a Glove-“GNeuroPathy”. The main objective of this paper is to describe all the components of VR4NeuroPain solution. The system can be used by physicians, occupational therapists and physiotherapists. VR4Neuropain allows the use of innovative and interactive intervention methodologies.
