AppliedVR is introducing virtual reality technology in the Spine Center, Department of Surgery and Orthopaedic at Center Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. More such launches are expected in the coming months.

Cedars-Sinai Medical Center is among the first hospitals to utilize scalable VR technology. After investing in AppliedVR via the TechStars healthcare accelerator, Cedars-Sinai is implementing AppliedVR pilots across several areas, including the Orthopaedic Center, Spine Center, and Department of Surgery.

AppliedVR’s main products were developed in partnership with Cedars-Sinai. The first product suite, Pain RelieVR, offers VR games intended to divert a patient’s focus away from a procedure or recovery process. Guided Relaxation, in the Anxiety RelieVR suite, is used to help transport a patient using VR from the medical environment.
