Researcher, Medical doctor Clinique Saint-Jean Bruxelles, Belgium

I am a Belgian anaesthetist and I created a VR unit in my hospital. I ma using VR to treat pain, anxiety and for digital sedation. My goal is on one hand to make Medical VR popular because I believe it is a safe, easy and cheap technic to help many patients. There is however a need to collect clinical data to prove it's efficacy and that's my second goal.

The Medical Virtual reality Unit is a unique concept in a hospital. I am proposing VR to the patients who are anxious, who are in pain and who need a sedation. There are , at this moment, 10 departments involved. Every department has clear clinical guidelines to whom they can propose VR. Also every user has had a training session to guarantee and optimal use of the VR experience. We have included a reporting system that allows to improve where needed and can be a starting point to organise clinical trials. The idea is to be able to propose VR to as many patients as possible.
