The presentation will discuss the idea of the Virtual Therapeutic Garden applied in the VRTierOne medical device. The device was developed as a result of a research and development (R&D) grant, funded by the Polish National Center for Research and Development with the support from the European Union. The effectiveness of the device (mood improvement and decrease of the level of stress and anxiety) has been verified in clinical trials in the course of cardiac, neurological and geriatric rehabilitation.
