VR to Ease Patient Anxiety
PNI Therapeutics is working to ease pain and promote patient comfort.
Patients undergoing non-sedative medical procedures, even a simple blood draw, often experience significant anxiety. Stress levels among pediatric patients are frequent, may impede the administration of medical practices, and result in long-term psychological distress. Anxiety is even more considerable when patients are preparing for surgery. Preoperative sedatives and anti-anxiety drugs often have adverse side effects and may prolong recovery. Virtual Reality is a non-pharmacological distraction therapy that is proven to reduce fear, stress, and pain.
PNI Therapeutics is working with VR developers to bring VR-based therapeutic programs to hospitals and clinics to ease patient fear, anxiety, and pain. Don't hesitate to contact us if you would like to start a VR-based therapeutic program for your patients.
