Study Summary

The purpose of this study is to assess the therapeutic response to VR Solace in patients with chronic pain and anxiety using real-time clinical and survey data. Regression analysis of demographic characteristics, lab and survey data will be conducted to better understand the efficacy of VR Solace in treating chronic pain and anxiety. The investigator also aims to explore the possible association between the patient-reported changes in pain or anxiety levels with real-time physiological changes observed during VR Solace use.
