Danielle Levac from Northeastern University has been investigating the application of virtual reality computer gaming in rehabilitation for a number of years. We took this opportunity to explore her experience and perspectives on VR in this conversation in the lead up to the ER-WCPT conference where we demonstrated an Occulus Rift VR system for attendees to prompt creative ideas for the application of this technology in physiotherapy education and treatment.
