The first use of virtual reality in medicine was in the early 1990s when a team at the University of Washington created “SnowWorld” to help burn victims cope with their pain.

Since then, VR has been used for a variety of applications in healthcare, including training for medical procedures, treating phobias and anxiety disorders, helping with physical rehabilitation, and more. Some hospitals are even using VR headsets to provide distraction-free environments during surgeries and even providing training to new recruits as it helps in simulation and practice before going into the real surgery business.
