Howard Rose is a pioneer in creating medical applications for Virtual Reality, and I had a chance to catch up with him about his company Firsthand Technology which is creating pain management applications for VR. He’s also creating medical VR applications that help with physical health, mental health, and behavioral health. Rose has a lot of deep experiential design insights into the virtual reality medium, and he’s taking an evidence-based approach to describe how the immersion, interactivity, physical and mental stimulation of VR combine into creating a “mind over molecule” approach to healing where patients become active producers of their own health care rather than passive consumers.
