Retraining Chronic Pain in Virtual Reality
RelieVR is a Virtual Reality training tool for Chronic pain. By playing RelieVR, patients learn strategies to manage their pain better and get educated about pain. One in five adults worldwide suffer from Chronic Pain – with many countries heading toward opioid crises. Despite international guidelines on chronic pain stating education and pain management techniques as first choice interventions, less then 10 percent of patients receives this treatment – compared to more then 70 percent receiving medication. It explains the need for scalable solutions such as RelieVR.
Healthcare Psychologist and entrepreneur. I’ve experienced the benefits of psychological treatment for Chronic Pain - but also the lack of capacity in the field. My focus is on developing treatment innovations such as RelieVR for Chronic Pain that make smart use of new technology. My vision is that everyone should have an easy access to psychological knowledge and interventions. My ambition is to develop accessible psychological applications that are easy to use and affordable.
