A breakthrough in the diagnosis, simulation, and treatment of concussions has been made through the development of virtual reality (VR) headsets.
Multiple VR headset devices have been introduced in the medical field to develop a deeper understanding of concussions and diagnose head injuries more efficiently and precisely.
This technology could immensely help in diagnosing head injuries sustained during contact sports, such as football, lacrosse, soccer, and basketball.
According to the Virtual Reality Society, virtual reality can be defined as “a three-dimensional, computer-generated environment which can be explored and interacted with a person.”
Virtual reality headsets will change the manifestation of concussions in various ways. For example, when a CT scan doesn’t detect internal bleeding after a Traumatic Brain Injury, patients go untreated. This can be very dangerous to a person’s health; just because there is no internal bleeding, does not mean they didn’t receive a concussion. Virtual reality headsets will be able to detect any signs or symptoms of concussions so that the appropriate treatment can be given.
Learn below how virtual reality headsets can assist in the treatment and evaluation of concussions:
Additionally, this device is compatible with the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.
After enduring a handful of successful returns, BrainGainz implements a concussion-level force by a defensive player.
After the hit occurs, the user can choose to sit out or continue playing. After being hit, the app simulates visual disorientation that is similar to a real concussion.
BrainGainz aims to raise awareness among college football players of the damaging effects of concussions.
Head injuries such as concussions and traumatic brain injury can cause many health concerns later down the road. If a concussion goes undiagnosed or untreated, or if a person has received several concussions, they are more likely to suffer from CTE; Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy. This is why the detection, diagnosis, treatment, and recovery of concussions is crucial.
