Personalised VR enhances Analgesic Effects of SCS for Chronic Pain
In their latest publication on personalised VR for analgesia, Dr Marco Solca and colleagues describe a new digiceutical method for chronic pain, SCS-VR, that combines neuromodulation (Spinal Cord Simulation), VR (Virtual Reality), and the latest research from cognitive neuroscience of multisensory integration into a single therapeutic solution.
Virtual reality helps measure vulnerability to stress
Behavioral scientists at EPFL have developed a virtual reality test that assesses a person’s vulnerability to stress while exploring immersive environments. The resulting model offers the field of stress research one of the first such tools that does not rely on subjective evaluations.
