The positive impact of virtual environments for patients is discussed in a recent washingtonpost.com article.

I happen to know one of the experts who is mentioned there, Albert “Skip” Rizzo, just met him in Venice at the conference Virtual Rehabilitation 2007. He presented some results of his Virtual Iraq project, aiming to treat returning soldiers with Combat-Related Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
