medical video games are READY to Take off

"We have seen everything from VR environments to reduce anxiety, pain and PTSD in patients, to games to educate and train medical professionals, and games to help patients with chronic conditions stay on track with their treatments and rehab. With the Texas Medical Center, the biggest medical center in the country, the medical gaming industry could really take off here in Houston."
