Embodiment in Virtual Reality as a Digital Therapeutic for the Treatment of Low Back Pain

Michael Trujillo, PhD, Anthony Alvarez, BS,  Lincoln Nguyen, BS, Jon Weinberg, MBA, James Petros, MD, MBA

Karuna Labs Inc. has developed the Karuna Virtual Embodiment Training™ (KVET™) system to address the need for alternative, non-invasive, non-addictive methods to treat chronic pain. KVET™ uses a combination of virtual environments and avatars that provide visual feedback during chronic pain functional rehabilitation. Our key innovation is the application of virtualreality (VR) to improve patients’ willingness and ability to perform physical therapy (PT) and to improve the effectiveness of PT for the treatment of chronic pain.
