Last month, I attended a very interesting (and free) presentation from Dr. Rizzo of the USC Institute for Creative Technologies at iWerx Co-working Office Space and Entrepreneurial Development Center in North Kansas City. Dr. Rizzo explained how virtual reality headsets and computer programs can be used as a tool for mental health wellness and physical rehabilitation. He first started utilizing this technology with veterans who suffered from PTSD.
