Virtual reality (VR) demonstrated limited or modest potential as a cognitive rehabilitation tool in adults with traumatic brain injury. "However, limitations and bias considerations for all studies included the following some of the studies reported sample sizes as small as a single participant, presenting interesting case studies but limiting generalizability to other populations" (p. 1328).
