Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a disorder characterized by a persistent pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity/impulsivity that occurs in academic, occupational, or social settings. Though the number of men having this disorder increases gradually all over the world, the treatment for ADHD is limited to stimulant medications or a cognitive behavioral treatment. This fact caused us to develop the newly system for treatment of ADHD using Virtual Reality technology. Psychotherapy using VR has some advantages that it is safer and more effective than conventional therapeutic methods. We divided subjects into control group and VR group depending on whether they will have VR therapy with HMD & Tracking system. And we compared the results of CPT (Continuous Performance Test) between before and after the experiments. So we will show the effect of this VR system and the possibility VR technology can contribute greatly to the treatment of ADHD in this paper.
