Virtual Reality Tool to Assess Cue Reactivity Component of Addiction via the Oculus Rift™ Virtual Reality Headset
Substance use disorder therapies aim to interrupt addiction at various points in the cycle. In our Virtual Reality Cue Exposure (VRCE) we can consistently and measurably present a variety of virtual stimuli and environments that might illicit or inhibit drug or food-seeking activity. Patients can navigate through the challenges in cue exposure, environments and social situations and complete ratings to assess response.
