VIRTUAL REALITY COULD HAVE A HUGE IMPACT IN PATIENT’S HEALING.
Existing pain management techniques are often insufficient to ease patients’ mental and physical pain. Medical studies have shown that VR pain distraction is a viable relief strategy and, in many cases, is more effective than opioids. It could also be cost effective for medical facilities as it may speed up patient recovery time and thus reduce the use of resources.
Virtual reality allows patients a sensory escape from pain—they can travel to exciting destinations, have underwater adventures, and even climb mountains—all through the magic of virtual reality!
The Virtual Relief Organization is an organization that brings virtual reality to individuals in medical facilities at no cost. We are sponsored by the Center for Social Change, a non-profit organization that supports visionaries in South Florida who want to change the world.
Our goal is to be the premier nonprofit organization bringing VR pain distraction to patients in medical facilities to help improve their mental and physical condition.
