Virtual reality pilot for people with dementia in Salford

Salford residents with dementia are taking part in a virtual reality rehabilitation pilot.

Local brain injury charity Basic has installed a virtual reality system that allows people to take part in life-sized interactive games and activities, exposing them to environments that are physically challenging without putting them in any real danger.

The 12 month pilot called Virtual Adventures is funded by NHS Salford CCG.
