The application of virtual-reality-based rehabilitation technology (VRRT) is a growing interdisciplinary field conjugating new scientific discovery and innovative technological advancement. The use of VR in rehabilitation is well-documented as useful, feasible, and safe. However, more research is needed to transform VR according to a clinical standard for rehabilitation. This Special Issue aims to present the most recent advances in rehabilitation applications of VR, as well as their implications for future patient care. The objective of the current Special Issue is to collect studies dealing with VR-based neurologic rehabilitation, with a focus on innovative tools, neurophysiological correlates of VR application in the clinical setting, and VR-based clinical trials. Any type of contribution (original research, review, brief reports, etc.) are welcome. It is our hope that exploring the field of VR-based rehabilitation will reveal more about how technology can support rehabilitation principles and outcomes.
