VR is also a good way to prevent dementia. One in nine people over the age of 65 in the world suffer from Alzheimer's. VR can control chronic pain, anxiety and depression. This is the third of dementia. Great symbolic illness.

People with dementia often feel lost because they feel they don't belong anywhere. Many old people are easily confused by the surrounding environment, or gradually alienate their families because of the strange feelings. Old people can be relaxed by providing some quiet virtual environment, which helps relieve pain, anxiety and disappointment while reducing loneliness.

Social Communication

Social isolation and loneliness can be said to be a health hazard for the elderly, and a VR platform has been set up to help the elderly break the pain of social isolation.

MACY Classroom-Elderly Education-Body Exercise

Body Exercise

VR can not only help the elderly psychologically, but also help them physically and make them more motivated to exercise.

A study at the University of Aalborg in Denmark found that VR can stimulate the exercise desire of elderly patients in nursing centers – this is very difficult, because even if they are all equipped with fitness equipment, many older people still feel that exercise will make the body pain, and then not exercise.

Aalborg University's project hopes to make exercise a digital experience. They have experimented with putting a big TV in front of the exercise bike, and the scenery on the TV has changed with the speed of the users on the car. The health of older people who have been trained in this way has increased. This test was so successful that the families of nursing homes and the elderly wanted to turn this test into a permanent project.
