An exciting body of research regarding the utilization of advanced technologies in healthcare has emerged over the past decade, revealing the continuous advances and discoveries made by over 450 investigators to help patients with both mental and physical disorders. Advanced technologies—such as virtual reality (VR), robotics, non-invasive physiological monitoring, E-health, and adaptive displays—are now being applied to several areas of healthcare.
The Journal of CyberTherapy and Rehabilitation (JCR - ISSN: 1554-8716) is published quarterly by the Virtual Reality Medical Institute (VRMI) - a Belgium SME that uses advanced technologies such as virtual reality and telehealth to improve the quality and availability of healthcare for people around the globe - in cooperation with Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, hosting and maintaining this web site.
