Bringing the Battlefield Home: How VR is Shaping the Future of PTSD Care
It’s more than just a video game; it’s a matter of life or death. Or so it would appear to patients using Brave Mind. Brave Mind, a virtual reality(VR) depicting scenes of Afghanistan and Iraq, allows veterans to become fully immersed in virtual foot patrols and convoys to directly face their fears and learn to cope with them. It was created by Virtually Better Inc.(VBI), an organization comprised of clinicians and technicians that develops tools to assist patients with a variety of anxiety and behavior disorders.
