Virtual reality used to improve the motor skills of patients suffering from Parkinson’s disease

Publication date: Apr 14, 2019

Thanks to virtual reality training, US researchers have been able to improve the motor skills of ten patients with Parkinson’s disease: an encouraging step forward.

That’s not the case: researchers at the University of Utah (USA) have just used this technology to help patients with Parkinson’s disease move more easily.

American researchers may have found a new way to improve the life of patients: thanks to virtual reality, they have placed 10 patients suffering from Parkinson’s disease on a virtual -road” full of obstacles.
