Creative Approaches to Cystic Fibrosis Treatment

Encouraging physical activity

In addition, VR experiences also motivate patients to participate in more physical activity. Many of the VR storylines that are being developed call for participants to interact with the world to some degree. While this interaction is often not strenuous, it does at least motivate a child to keep moving around rather than just sitting still. Movement is both good for patients physically and emotionally, as well by stimulating blood flow and energy in the body.
