When people use it, for the most part, it reduces their pain quite considerably, so within in the course of five minutes the pain will drop from about five-and-a-half points to four points on a ten-point scale. That's pretty dramatic for not using any narcotics, no medications, no medical intervention, just the experience of being transported away from where you physically are.Dr. Brennan SpiegelDirector of Cedars-Sinai Health Services Research
AR/VR can help with stress relief and pain reduction, transporting a patient to a remote oasis or allowing a patient to play a game while hospitalized or undergoing treatments. Studies have shown that using VR for hospitalized patients is more effective than past tactics to help distract patients from their pain.Kristina RedgraveFuse, Cardinal Health
We are finding that the ability to distract these patients with fully immersive, fun and relaxing sensory environments can have a significant impact on the anxiety and pain that they experience during minor procedures, dressing changes and other medical treatments.Dr. Sam RodriguezCHARIOT Program Founder
It's no secret that everyone complains about going to the dentist. This [virtual reality device] is a way to distract people and use the power of mind instead of pharmaceuticals.Dr. Mark OlsonMark Olson DDS
Patients absolutely undergo a high amount of anxiety and stress, and distractions have been shown to help … like listening to music or having the TV on. Unlike TV and music, it's more immersive and it does literally block out any other visual stimuli. It would not surprise me at all if many individuals did experience a reduction in anxiety in this type of distraction.Edmond HewlettProfessor at the UCLA School of Dentistry
