Why are we doing this?

Many people suffer from stress, such as burn-out, depression or anxiety. This results in a lot of personal suffering and high medical costs (CBS, 2019).Reducing stress and learning to relax is an important pillar of good mental health. But that is easier said than done. That’s why VRelax was created because we have experienced that Virtual Reality has a very fast and strong effect on body and mind.

VRelax has been developed together with clients and social workers for stress reduction, but also as a distraction principle in case of pain or physical discomfort, for example in hospitals. This allows people to relax themselves and feel better. Our dream is that VRelax makes people more relaxed and healthy. As a result, they are better balanced, have fewer psychological complaints and function better.

A strong combination of disciplines

We are enthusiastic, creative and driven people from healthcare, science and Virtual Reality industry, who, together with patients and care providers, have created a Virtual Reality app that relaxes, distracts and makes you happy. At VRelax, we believe in this new dimension of care. Care in which self-management is key and people are stimulated even more by images, sound, smell and biofeedback.

We see that VRelax directly helps with stress, tension and worries. More than 10 hospitals and mental health care institutions now work with VRelax. This has taught us what does and does not work when implementing VR in the practice of healthcare. The founders below jointly determine the vision and strategy within VRelax and, within their own department, manage various co-workers to make VRelax a little better every day.
