The process of hemodialysis is slow, repetitive and uncomfortable. Patients often perceive it as time taken from their lives with a sense of ineluctability and emptiness, engendering a negative emotional and cognitive perception of the world and one’s place in it. There’s a need to make patients to feel better during the medical process (reducing of stress, pain and discomfort), as well to make the process more effective due to patients physical activity in small and safety scale.
Using the VR technologies will improve well-being of the patients and increase the quality of uncomfortable medical process. Creation of a true multisensory experience will absorb the patient’s perceptions during hemodialysis. Thanks to that VR solutions will appear as an effective tool to minimize pain and stress due to venipuncture or other medical interventions. What is more, a our designed VR app and gear will make the whole process of hemodialysis more effective, thanks to immersing the patient in a virtual environment and encouraging him to perform simple physical activity.
