Les examens et les soins médicaux 💉 peuvent être très douloureux, alors des médecins en France ont commencé à fournir des casques de réalité virtuelle ⛑️ aux patients, surtout les enfants. On l'appelle la cyberthérapie. Puisque les patients sont concentrés dans le jeu 🎮devant eux, il ressentent moins de douleur 😓 et restent plus détendues. Si on réussit a diminuer le stress, on ressent moins de douleur, puisque les deux sont liés 🔗. L'utilisation du casque peut même éviter la nécessité d'anesthésiants, ce qui évite une médication 💊 de plus et donc moins d'effets secondaires. Les scientifiques 👩‍🔬 👨‍🔬 proposent aussi l'utilisation des casques virtuelles pour aider avec les phobies, l'addiction, et mêmes les accouchements.
