Better health in a virtual world – A feasibility study for the use of Virtual Reality amongst elderly people with dementia and chronic disease

19.12.2016

This Norway Pumps & Pipes project is a cooperation between Doublethink AS and SESAM (Helse Stavanger).

Together they want to perform a feasibility study aiming at identifying and lay the foundation for further work within active use of Virtual Reality (VR) in treatment of elderly people with dementia, patients with chronic disease and their relatives, and the health workers attitude towards the use of modern visualization technology.

VR is a visualization and control technology which has become more and more widespread in the recent years, and is now well established in several industries. For example, the oil & gas industry applies VR for safety and stress training of employees and for simulation of subsea operations, e.g. ROV-operations. In the medical sector, there is an increase in use of VR for simulation of patient operations and for educational purposes. The project team now wants to explore the possibilities for using this technology in patient situations. The end goal is to establish an alternative treatment for the previously mentioned target groups. The project is in line with Stavanger university hospitals technology focus in the coming years towards the new hospital at Ullandhaug; SUS2023.
