Gamer fractures spine following regular use of VR headset

Posted (IP: Staff) ·

A German gamer fractured his spine following regular use of his virtual reality headset.

Rather than the horrifying injury resulting from the gamer falling over while using the headset, instead it occurred following his ‘repetitive’ and ‘intense’ movements from playing up to four hours a day. 

Medics revealed that the repeated strenuous movements wore down one of the vertebrae in his neck, eventually forcing it to crack. 

The case, which has now been detailed in the Journal of Medical Case Reports, is thought to be one of the first ever instances of stress fracture caused by virtual gaming, and probably won’t be the last.

Must be prior degenerative issues.

That is absurd.
