Lenovo™ Collaboration With Starlight Children’s Foundation® Shows the Power of Virtual Reality to Reduce Pain for Hospitalized Children | Valdosta Daily Times

Results from a new global survey by Lenovo show that, overall, people believe that Virtual Reality can have a positive impact on our health and they believe in the potential of this and other technologies.  VR is now being used in medical procedures to calm anxiety and cut down on the number of medications needed during a procedure, especially for children. Over 15,000 patients were involved in a study throughout numerous countries, with 47% saying they believe the technology to be critical for the future of healthcare. VR has the potential to replace general anesthesia for pain toleration and could greatly impact the quality of life for hospitalized children.
