With virtual reality to a more stable posture

Dear Sir or Madam,

our backs suffer from long periods of sitting at the desk and one-sided strain. Strengthening the trunk muscles is therefore essential for a stable and healthy posture. However, such exercises are usually monotonous and are often neglected. The new ICAROS VR is designed to introduce patients to training and prevention in a playful way. See more in our new video.

I wish you a cosy week!

ICAROS VR - Training and Prevention in Virtual Reality

The term gamification refers to the application of elements of game playing in non-game contexts, for example, to encourage participants to engage in a task that is otherwise deemed too monotonous. We are visiting the German Sport University Cologne to interview Dr. Boris Feodoroff, who together with his team is testing a training device that uses virtual reality and is designed to help stabilize the muscles of the trunk by using a flight simulator.

But what is the best method for diagnosis? A recent study found that functional imaging methods can often spare patients the trouble and risks of a coronary angiography.
