Pain diversion

An immersive VR experience can distract patients from the pain they are in, while potentially triggering pain-relieving endorphins that last even after the headset is removed.2

Specialized experiences

VR scenarios can be customized to better target specific types of pain. So while burn victims are most responsive to icy snowscapes, aerial environments are optimal for spinal nerve damage victims.2

Responsive capabilities

Because biosensors test patient anxiety levels, these experiences are also astutely responsive. So if an environment triggers undesirable emotions for a patient, the platform can react by altering the experience.
