Following severe injury or reconstructive surgery that considerably alters patient’s visual appearance, many people suffer from psychological issues trying to adjust to the new reality. Becoming comfortable with oneself and having a good impression of how one looks to others can greatly improve self esteem and help move on with life. To aid and accelerate this process, Dr. Joseph Haik, a plastic surgeon and burn specialist at Tel Aviv University and director of the Chaim Sheba Medical Center-Tel Hashomer Hospital’s Burn Unit, has been recommending the EyeToy accessory for the Sony PlayStation to many of his patients. The EyeToy uses a camera atop a television to place a player inside the game he’s playing. By seeing oneself in action in the game, Dr. Haik believes patients can get more comfortable with their new exterior.
