Cybersickness or Virtual Reality sickness are similar to Motion Sickness. Symptoms are almost the same: you feel dizzy as on a car trip or feel sick like on a plane. Everything depends on the VR technology that headset is using. Consequences might be more or less intense. Usually it is because of problems with presence and balance. Eyes send false perspective as motion is displayed in headset and even that your brain is aware of headset and game being on, your body still wants to react. That is how Motion Sickness occurs.
VR IN NUTSHELL
In 2020, we have the wide variety of VR headsets which differ from each other on different levels. Headsets became relatively cheap and that is a main reason why it is being used in training, rehabilitation and gaming. With the new next generation of technology new problems occurred. VR is facing a couple of them right now: oculomotor disturbances, 3DoF VR which have problem with sense of presence and very underestimated cause are computer graphics for VR.
To neglect almost all causes of suffering from VR entertainment we should own high-end PC, 6DoF VR and the most important – motion platforms. Thanks to motion platforms the sense of presence would be fulfilled because of great precision with which platforms simulate movement. That is why our products starting from 2DoF sim racing experience and finishing on high payload 6DoF platforms are able to decrease and almost totally help you to avoid suffering from VR. When we plug in both VR and motion systems into action we can use it for Vestibular Rehabilitation which means that gaming or training technology can help to cure people.
