LEVERAGING VIRTUAL REALITY TO REDUCE AND ELIMINATE PAIN

We wondered if watching 3D videos could help ease neuropathic pain – turns out we weren’t the only ones.

What better way to share our story than in VR! 

July 7th 4PM PDT

Our Focus

The short term goal is to help a friend reduce or eliminate his neuropathic pain, caused from a spinal cord injury 11 years ago.

The application of Virtual Reality to change the brain and reduce pain has shown promise on a small, experimental scale.

We soon realized that others might be able to benefit from these videos as well. Hence, the creation of this website to share what we’re learning and creating to help the greatest number of people possible.

Since launching this website, we’ve also learned that beyond trying to change the brain (neuroplasticity) for individuals suffering from neuropathic pain, VR is a great tool for providing pain relief through distraction for individuals suffering many different types of pain – acute and chronic. Consequently, we encourage you to check out our blog for the latest apps and content that we’re finding helpful to those seeking pain relief.

Research

Below are some of the videos, research abstracts and books that have informed our thinking and experiments.
