About Us


“Karuna Labs performed the study to measure the effects on patients using its Virtual Embodiment Therapy™ technology, which applies graded Motor Imagery, corrective exercises from physical therapy which focus on performing activities of daily living and real-time position tracking.

The study evaluated 15 patients with chronic shoulder pain and measured range of motion on three planes for each arm: shoulder flexion (arms straight above the head), shoulder scaption (arms out to the sides), and shoulder abduction (arms straight out and away from the body).

‘These study results using our proprietary VR technology have immense implications for rehabilitation in patients suffering from chronic pain,’ said Lincoln Nguyen, Karuna CEO.”
