 VR has become a kind of "electronic painkiller"

Through a two-year partnership, AppliedVR and the Veterans Health Administration have collaborated to design a VR-based “electronic painkiller” for veterans.

Next, 18 veterans care institutions will prescribe the FDA-approved, eight-week VR treatment project "RelieVRx" to suitable chronic pain patients.

"RelieVRx" combines several aspects of pain management techniques: body awareness, distraction, relaxation and behavior modification.

For example, one of the tasks in the project involved having a patient throw a snowball at a bear in VR, an act that engaged the neural pathways that the patient normally uses to transmit pain signals.

In the past, many treatments for chronic pain were similar to acute pain, based on drugs and surgery. In addition to the high cost of this treatment plan, it will also lead many veterans to become addicted to opioid painkillers.

VR experience therapy extends the treatment surface to consider the patient's mental and emotional pain.

Clinical tests in 2021 have shown that eight weeks of VR therapy can significantly help patients cope with pain. A follow-up study published by AppliedVR noted that patients also experienced "clinically significant" improvements in pain six months after completing the treatment.
