XRSW 2021 - Physiotherapy, Psychotherapy, and beyond



In whatever form, therapy should ultimately be focused on giving back autonomy and self-determination to people. Does XR encourage more active participation in therapy as opposed to more passive forms of treatment? What are the advantages, limits, and risks of using immersive technologies as part of treatment, and to what degree can they safely replace traditional therapy?

Finally, what benefits might data collection have in this context, what types of data would be collected, and how can this be done safely without violating the rights of users.
