Managing pain through distraction

A research team from the University of Malta uses VR to help people to “forget” pain by distraction.

Alexiei Dingli, a professor at the Department of Artificial Intelligence, and his team are developing an application named Morpheus, which will help reduce pain in patients without the use of medication. The app will be downloadable on smartphones and will work in tandem with a VR (virtual reality) set and a smartwatch to distract the user from pain.
