Clinical Study of VR for Chronic Pain

Dr. Ted Jones is bringing VR to patients at his Knoxville clinic, Pain Consultants of East Tennessee. Dr. Jones has been using DeepStream VR’s pain relief application, COOL!, with patients suffering severe chronic nonmalignant pain (CNP). Dr. Jones teamed with Dr. Todd Moore of U. of Tennessee to measure the effect of VR on his patients. Their study showed:

  • pain reductions of 60-70% during the VR treatment
  • 30-50% immediately after treatment
  • This effect lasted up to 48 hours after treatment
  • No patients reported any dizziness, headache or nausea
