Description

Barclays, Immerse UK and Hatsumi Present:

Immersive Health: Pain and Distraction

From increasing recovery time in rehabilitation to training surgeons and offering new forms of psychological therapy, Immersive technology offers a new frontier in improving health and wellbeing. One of the most successful applications of virtual reality in healthcare has been in pain management and is demonstrating its potential as a viable alternative to opioids.

Join Immerse UK, Barclays Eagle Labs and Hatsumi for an evening of talks, demos and conversation exploring the future of pain management and the emerging new world of digital pharmaceuticals.

Demos and funding mentoring opportunities from The Knowledge Transfer Network will be available.
