An opinion piece in Canada’s National Post advocates for treatments for post-traumatic stress and mentions ICT’s virtual reality exposure therapy.
“Academic studies show the software’s ‘exposure therapy’ is one of the few things that produces a meaningful reduction in PTSD symptoms,” states the story. “It works by using a head-mounted display, as well as directional 3D audio, vibrations and smells to produce a simulation of an Afghan environment that’s the next best thing to reality.”
The article notes the system is being adapted for use in Canada.
