Advances in medical care have contributed to a larger population aged 65 and over. Studies show that the average life expectancy for a child born in 2015 is 79 years. To date, Virtual Reality has been used to treat depression, anxiety, and a wide variety of other neurological conditions known to challenge our ageing population. It can provide a stimulus and motivation to exercise, often resulting in a boost to the immune system and emotional state of the participant. When used in combination with ‘real world’ activities, Virtual Reality has been shown to improve the overall quality of life for elderly patients.
