Like everything else, there is an online option to exercise. Scientists from Japan’s Tohoku University say that exercising in virtual reality improves your health. That is, people who are unable to do heavy exercises can also improve their health by training virtually. This research has been published in the International Journal of Environmental Research.

Beneficial for patients with serious diseases

Researchers say that physical exercise benefits our whole body. However, there are some people who are unable to exercise daily. These include people suffering from neurological disorders, serious heart disease patients and hospitalized people. Physical exercise can be harmful for them. In such a situation, training in Immersive Virtual Reality (IVR) is a good option.

What is IVR?

Immersive virtual reality or IVR is a computer system used to create an imaginary world. In this world the user can live his life as he wants. The user feels as if he is actually experiencing the environment.

Scientists invented virtual reality for entertainment, but now researchers in the medical community are investigating its connection to health.

Impact of IVR on physical-mental health

According to an earlier research, seeing ourselves moving around in virtual reality actually changes our body. Whatever happens to us in the imaginary world, the heartbeat is irregular. Along with this, benefits related to memory and brain can also be seen. These changes are similar to those that occur after physical activity.

New research has similar results. When viewed from a first-person perspective, when humans ran at a speed of 6.4 kilometers per hour in virtual reality, the level of stress and anxiety was significantly reduced in reality. It was like exercising in the real world.

According to research, the heartbeat is irregular when anything happens to us in the imaginary world.

Beneficial for old people too

Researcher Delilah Burin says that Japan’s large population is now getting older and today the performance demand from people is very high, so exercising in virtual reality is a good way to take advantage of it. This will improve the health of all the people.
