VR App Prescribed For Pain Relief
A pharmacy chain in Sweden is stepping away from tradition to develop a happy place for the pain-afflicted
Apotek Hjärtat is a Swedish pharmacy chain that has developed an app to provide pain relief. The pharmacy decided to take on this project after reviewing research on how visual distractions are an effective way to deal with pain. Named ‘Happy Place,’ the app is comprised of a series of outdoor scenes that users can interact and engage with.
