Operated by a trained therapist who first gets to know the veteran, the technology is designed to let the service member relive events that are likely to be at the root of their PTSD. Working slowly and methodically, the therapist and the veteran discuss what might have been the cause, and then try to work through it.
The software is designed so that a wide variety of scenarios can be played out, from roadside bombs going off, to someone firing into a Humvee, to being on patrol at night using night vision, and much, much more.
