At Eodyne, we are developing a new application for pain management in collaboration with Roessingh Rehabilitation Center and Roessingh Research and Development.
According to recent studies on chronic pain in Europe, one in five adults surveyed across Europe reported suffering from chronic pain. As the name alludes, chronic pain doesn’t go away with time and can hinder people in their daily lives. New solutions are urgently needed to address chronic pain management and improve well-being.
To address this challenge, in 2023, Eodyne plans to launch a new Virtual Reality application for chronic pain management developed in collaboration with clinicians at Roessingh.
This application provides goal-oriented exercises, is easy and enjoyable to use and includes a gaming area with different difficulty levels and adaptive distractors as an intervention principle. In addition, patients will go through different modules to learn about pain and its mechanisms and health professionals will be able to access subjective and objective reports to monitor patient progress.
The application can be further personalised according to the needs of each user and under the supervision of the healthcare professional. The therapist can follow the patient’s performance in real time, and the difficulty can be adjusted to optimise the experience and help the patient manage pain.
