In healthcare, virtual reality (VR) is used as a diagnostic tool that allows doctors and surgeons to reach a diagnosis in conjunction with other methods, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). This approach involves simulation, expertise training, enabling the use of minimally invasive surgery and eliminating the need for invasive procedures. The utilization of virtual reality headsets assists patients in dealing with mental health issues and depression in real time, making them feel safer and more comfortable. Additionally, a combination of wearable gadgets and virtual reality allows patients and doctors to communicate from anywhere while evaluating medical progress in real-time. This technology is mostly used for robotic surgeries and remote telesurgeries. Apart from this, virtual reality in healthcare is widely used to plan, diagnose, and treat phobia, autism, depression, and addiction.
Virtual Reality (VR) in Healthcare Market Trends:
The market is majorly driven by the escalating adoption of connected devices in the healthcare industry. This can be attributed to the growing incorporation of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) with intricate medical procedures, including pain management, social cognition training, and damage evaluation and rehabilitation. In addition to this, continual advancements in dependable medical hardware and software development are providing an impetus to the market growth. Moreover, the introduction of smart wearable VR devices, such as rings, fit bands, fitness trackers, goggles, and headsets, is further creating a positive outlook for the market. Apart from this, the growing incidences of health disorders among the masses, particularly the geriatric population, is also contributing to the market. Some of the other factors providing a boost to the market include continuous developments in mobile applications and telemedicine, expanding medical expenditure and extensive research and development (R&D) activities.
