Multiple Sclerosis - seeking STEM therapeutic research developments in a realistic virtual Harbin / earth, both for cold water benefits of movement / exercise ... as well as at the atomic and cellular levels for modeling and research ... and re these MIT articles and successes/breakthroughs ...
Could people with Multiple Sclerosis with access to swimming pools (cool pools of water), for example, don a digital mask, as they walk around in the realistic Harbin Hot Springs' cool swimming pool? Have people with MS already found benefits at Harbin Hot Springs, with its various pool temperatures?
Could, for example, Pamela Sutherland - https://twitter.com/Ltd_To_Two - and see TOO her blog - https://livinginalimitedworld.com- living with MS in Glasgow, Scotland, do so, and flourish in new ways, finding freedom?
In searching on "MIT and multiple sclerosis" and similar, I found ...

Anna is interested in understanding the interplay between in vivo chemomechanical environment and stem cell differentiation, with an ultimate goal of improving stem cell based therapies. She is currently focused on the role of mechanical factors in neural stem cell differentiation and myelin repair in neurodegenerative diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis. Anna’s past research fields include quantum chemistry (PhD), and computational biology and biophysics (postdoctoral).http://kjvvgroup.mit.edu/?page_id=1916
