The Groningen-based company VRelax gives healthcare professionals the power to reduce stress, burnout and pain complaints with the help of Virtual Reality. VRelax offers a solution for these health complaints that is particularly apt in the current context, with its increasing demand for medical aids.

The number of people suffering from stress in our society is increasing, resulting in increased costs in healthcare and society. The influx of patients also puts increasing pressure on healthcare professionals. This changing healthcare landscape paves the way for matching solutions, such as those offered by VRelax.

The controlled distraction from stress, pain and worry gives patients the opportunity to recharge mentally without any effort.

VRelax is intended for clients in mental health care, hospitals, general practitioners, nursing homes and occupational health and safety services.
