English abstract
Most people have probably heard of the term Virtual Reality (VR). The computer technique Virtual Reality is used to present a virtual world to a user but differentiates itself from other media platforms with its’ higher level of immersion. The Virtual Reality movement is starting to expand from the field it has gained the most recognition from, the gaming industry. New innovations within Virtual Reality shows the possibilities to explore fields such as health care. The results from this have shown great potential and some area of use have even topped more traditional medical treatments such as cases of pain relief. The design process of this study have explored this relatively new way of using the VR. The goal has been to investigate how to design Virtual Reality for a vulnerable target group regarding their health. Preschool teachers is one of the top occupational groups in the country that produces the most cases of sick absence. The cause of this derives from mental health issues brought by poor work environments. This context is what I chose to investigate in my study. The following text covers my exploration of the field doing research and then using the extracted data together with different theories in psychology and Virtual Reality design to come up with a design solution to fit my purpose. Keywords: Design, Virtual Reality, Interaction, Preschool, Stress, Restoration
