The idea of this project is to lay out a suggestion of design and implementation of VR in the treatment of Claustrophobia (the fear of entrapment in small or tight spaces or lack of escape possibilities).
This idea comes of the already existing and implemented treatments of various clinical conditions and treatments thereof with the help of VR. Existing treatments expand to Acrophobia, Stress Therapy, Intracardiac Intervention, Balance Problems and Traumatic Brain Injuries and more.
Throughout our research we have found, that VR has already been used for treatment of Claustrophobia, as we will be comparing the results of our designs to methods and outcomes of the existing project.
We will not be testing our product due to the lack of professional involvement in the project, making us unqualified to securely test the product. We will however design it from the research and results, both our own and sourced, to design a product that can be used for treatment.
There are various ways of treating Claustrophobia. We are going to focus on CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) treatment, which involves slowly exposing the patient to their fears, while helping them deal with it.
