Abstract

Virtual reality (VR) is commonly perceived as ‘futuristic’, a view that perhaps stems from Hollywood movies from over 20 years ago such as ‘Tron’ and ‘The Matrix’ featuring interactive, computer-generated virtual environments. Yet, in 2021, science fiction has become reality with affordable, technologically advanced VR head-mounted displays (HMDs) with motion tracking. There is increasing focus on the utility of VR for therapeutics, with pain management emerging as a key area in which VR shows great potential.
