In addition to the recent VR content I’ve been finding helpful at distracting, we’ve been able to add three new 3D 180 degree first person VRx Therapeutic videos to the library. This time, we’ve added our first 3D 180 video filmed by a woman walking up stairs. Again, the goal is to fool the brain into thinking that the viewer can still control their lower body, so that it no longer feels compelled to send the neuropathic pain signals. I hope you find these helpful as well.

Having to deal with pain sucks. Doing so while also being threatened by a global pandemic doesn’t make things easier. If you’re like me and value the occasional distraction from your pain challenges by engaging in something enjoyable, this blog talks a little about some new quality content on Oculus Quest that I’ve discovered. The next blog will introduce three new 180° 3D videos we’ve made for those with neuropathic pain seeking to experiment with some VRx Therapy.

Over the Christmas holiday, Mike let me borrow his Oculus Quest. It’s a wireless, VR headset/computer with wireless hand controllers. Wow! This is some amazing tech. After a few days of me experimenting and my daughters loving the games, I decided to purchase my own device. At $699 for the 128 GB unit, it’s not cheap, but in terms of quality, mobility, ease of use and a platform for 3rd parties to develop add-ons, like haptic touch, this device is a great value.

A solid way to end the year, with Insta360 coming on board as a partner and my pain levels improving
(slowly but hopefully surely). Here’s a case study they recently published.
In the New Year we’ll have our two new cameras ready to loan so that we can make
even more 3D 180 videos to help others with their neuropathic pain.

For 2 months now I’ve been watching the 3D videos that Jim created for me, while trying to move my lower body as if the video is me in real time. The first 5 weeks I did the videos almost every day, but since then I’ve been watching them less often. Partly because I’m feeling less pain and I’m less desperate, but also because after having watched the same videos so many times, they’ve become ingrained in my memory. When I close my eyes, or even just think of the movements in the video, I’ll see them quite vividly in my mind. I continue to do this visualization many times each day.
