With the gradual rise in the technology and medical industries, healing and finding cures has become easier. In today’s world most facilities are readily available at times of emergencies. Healthcare has greatly improved over the years. Taking into consideration the number of health issues all around, we need to live up to the saying ‘health is wealth’ and ‘with a healthy body comes a healthy mind’ because being healthy is not only about being fit but is also a necessity for survival. Unfortunately, we can’t completely satiate the saying because not every disease has a cure. From cancer to muscular dystrophy to dementia, the list is endless. Dementia wasn’t taken up until a lot of people started to suffer and develop symptoms which drew concern to the matter at hand. Researchers and scientists took up the challenge to find the cure for the same but so far have been unsuccessful. The recent growth in technology gives us hope that maybe one-day dementia will have a cure. This white paper talks about how we can give dementia patients a new path of recovery and a way for them to trigger those memories and incidents using VR with built-in multisensory design.
