Top Virtual Reality Companies in Healthcare

What is the common denominator of behavioral psychology, pain management, medical training, rehabilitation and meditation? The answer is virtual reality. I believe that within a few years, VR will be a game-changer in these areas. Thus, it is high time to enlist the most important VR companies in healthcare. VR is conquering new heigths in terms of healthcare and sales figures Medical VR is an area with fascinating possibilities. It has not just moved the imagination of science-fiction fans, but also clinical researchers and real life medical practitioners. As a doctor, you could assist in the OR without ever lifting a scalpel. If you are a medical student, you could study the human body more closely and prepare better for real life surgeries. As a patient, you could escape the confinement of your hospital room and travel to Iceland. Even better, your pain and your stress might feel like they evaporated through the VR experience. As a patient with mental health problems, you could fight your possible fear of heights, schizophrenia or paranoia more successfully. VR seems to conquer healthcare gradually. And not only that. Although VR has promised to become “the next big thing” on the market for decades in vain, statistics show that the time has come now for the technology. Various market research companies estimate that the VR hardware and software market could be worth around $30 billion by 2020. The sales of VR headsets are projected to skyrocket in the nex...

Publication date: Available online 14 February 2020Source: The Journal of Steroid Biochemistry and Molecular BiologyAuthor(s): Hong Chen, Qianru Zhang, Ruimin Chen, Xin Yuan, Xiangquan Lin, Xiaohong Yang, Ying ZhangAbstractCongenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) encompasses a group of autosomal recessive diseases characterized by enzymatic defects in steroid synthesis. Lipoid congenital adrenal hyperplasia (LCAH) is the most severe form of CAH, insofar as the initial step of steroid synthesis is impaired. Variants in the steroid acute regulatory (STAR) gene are responsible for LCAH. To describe the clinical and genetic charac...

ConclusionFor the first time our study demonstrates the distinct action of E. carinatus and N. naja venoms on the process of NETosis. NETosis being a newly explored area in snake venom pharmacodynamics, it is important to study its impact on the various pathophysiological properties induced by snake venoms.SignificanceUnderstanding the varied actions of snake venoms on neutrophils/blood cells and the role of DNase are likely to provide insights for better management of snakebite pathophysiology.

De BatsAbstractSilicone-based composites material as Thermal Protection System (TPS) found a large use in the aerospace industry to protect wall structures from severe heating (airframe or propulsion parts, including ramjet type). The matrix of the composite material is often reinforced with fillers, such as Carbon Fibres (CFs) and Silicon Carbide Powder (SCP). This formulation aims to improve the thermomechanical properties which leads to significant impact ...

The formation and development of crystal nuclei during aging below Tg and during heating to the crystallization temperature have been probed by fast scanning chip calorimetry. The size and stability of the crystal nuclei change with the aging time. A short aging below Tg can only induce nuclei with sm...
