Ululu Wosatha Kwambiri: Chithandizo Chatsopano Chatsopano Chowona Chowonadi

Written by mkonzi

AppliedVR, mpainiya wopititsa patsogolo m'badwo wotsatira wamankhwala ozama, lero alengeza kuti US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) yapereka chivomerezo cha de novo chifukwa chamankhwala ake odziwika bwino, EaseVRx, kuchiza ululu wammbuyo wammbuyo, womwe m'mbuyomu udalandira kutchulidwa kwa chipangizocho. mu 2020. Nkhaniyi imabweranso pazidendene za AppliedVR kulengeza $36 miliyoni mndandanda B ndalama kuzungulira, kubweretsa ndalama zake zonse $71 miliyoni.

EaseVRx ndi chida chachipatala chogwiritsidwa ntchito ndi mankhwala chomwe chili ndi mapulogalamu odzaza kale papulatifomu ya hardware yomwe imapereka maphunziro oyendetsera ululu potengera luso lachidziwitso cha khalidwe ndi njira zina zamakhalidwe. Imagwiritsa ntchito makina a Immersive Virtual Reality (VR) omwe amapereka zinthu za VR pomwe akuphatikiza maphunziro opweteka a biopsychosocial, maphunziro opumira a diaphragmatic, masewera olimbitsa thupi, masewera olimbitsa thupi omasuka komanso masewera olimbitsa thupi.

Pulogalamu ya EaseVRx imakhala ndi masabata asanu ndi atatu, pulogalamu ya VR yomwe imathandiza anthu kuchepetsa kuopsa kwa zizindikiro ndi zotsatira za ululu wawo. Anthu omwe ali ndi ululu wopweteka kwambiri amatsatira ndondomeko yovomerezeka yachipatala, yozikidwa pa umboni kuti ikhale ndi luso lothana ndi vutoli komanso kupanga zizoloŵezi zatsopano, zothandiza zomwe zingathe kuchepetsa kupweteka kwambiri ndi kusokoneza ululu.

"Chivomerezo cha FDA chamasiku ano ndi tsiku lofunika kwambiri kwa AppliedVR, ku gawo lachirengedwe lozama ndipo, chofunika kwambiri, kwa anthu omwe akudwala kupweteka kwa msana," anatero Matthew Stoudt, woyambitsa nawo komanso CEO wa AppliedVR. "Kupweteka kwam'mbuyo kwanthawi yayitali kumatha kukhala vuto lofooketsa komanso lokwera mtengo kwambiri, koma tsopano tatsala pang'ono kukwaniritsa cholinga chathu chopanga machiritso ozama kukhala muyezo wa chisamaliro cha ululu."

Kutumiza kwa FDA kwa AppliedVR kunathandizidwa ndi mayesero awiri osasinthika (RCTs), kuyesa mphamvu ya pulogalamu ya VR yodzichitira nokha ululu wopweteka kunyumba. Maphunziro onse awiriwa adatsimikiza kuti pulogalamu yodzipangira yekha, yogwiritsa ntchito luso la VR sikunali njira yotheka komanso yowonjezereka yochizira ululu wopweteka, komanso inali yothandiza pakuwongolera zotsatira zopweteka zambiri.

Kafukufuku woyamba, wofalitsidwa mu JMIR Formative Research, adasanthula deta kuchokera kwa anthu omwe akudwala kupweteka kwapansi kapena kupweteka kwa fibromyalgia kwa masiku 21. Otsatira omwe amagwiritsa ntchito EaseVRx adachepetsa kwambiri zizindikiro zisanu zowawa zazikulu - zomwe zinakumana kapena kupitirira malire a 30 peresenti ya tanthauzo lachipatala.

Mu RCT yake yofunika kwambiri yophunzira za chitetezo ndi mphamvu ya EaseVRx kwa masabata asanu ndi atatu, otenga nawo mbali mu gulu la EaseVRx pafupifupi adanena za kusintha kwakukulu pambuyo pa chithandizo, kuphatikizapo kuchepetsa 42% mu ululu waukulu; 49% kuchepetsa kusokoneza ntchito; 52% kuchepetsa kusokoneza kugona; 56% kuchepetsa kusokoneza maganizo; ndi 57% kuchepetsa kusokoneza maganizo.

Deta yokhudzana ndi momwe angagwiritsire ntchito ndizofunikira kwa opereka chithandizo ndi olipira omwe akuyenera kuwunika mwayi woti mamembala/odwala azigwiritsa ntchito digito - makamaka kwa iwo eni omwe si achipatala. Pakafukufuku wofunika kwambiri, otenga nawo gawo a EaseVRx adawonetsa kukhudzidwa kwakukulu ndikumaliza kwa magawo 5.4 pa sabata ndikuwonetsa kukhutitsidwa ndi kugwiritsa ntchito mosavuta pa System Usability Scale (kuwerengera chipangizocho chosavuta kugwiritsa ntchito kuposa ma ATM ndi maimelo apamwamba).

"Tidagwira ntchito molimbika m'zaka zingapo zapitazi kuti tipange umboni wosayerekezeka wachipatala womwe ukuwonetsa mphamvu ya VR pochiza ululu, ndipo sitingakhale okondwa kwambiri kukwaniritsa chochitika chofunikirachi," adatero Josh Sackman, AppliedVR co- woyambitsa ndi pulezidenti. "Komatu, ntchito yathu siima ndi chivomerezo ichi. Tadzipereka kupitiliza kufufuza komwe kumatsimikizira kuti timagwira ntchito bwino komanso kuti ndife okwera mtengo pochiza ululu wosaneneka ndi zisonyezo zina. ”

Kupweteka kwapang'onopang'ono ndi chimodzi mwazovuta zomwe anthu amakumana nazo padziko lonse lapansi ndipo ndi chimodzi mwa zifukwa zomwe anthu amaphonya ntchito. Kuphatikiza apo, ndivuto lokwera mtengo kwambiri kwa ma inshuwaransi popeza ambiri amayang'ana kuchepetsa ndalama zokhudzana ndi opaleshoni yam'mbuyo. Kafukufuku waposachedwapa anasonyeza kuti, pamene palimodzi ndi ululu wa m'khosi, kupweteka kwa msana kumawononga pafupifupi $ 77 biliyoni ku inshuwalansi yaumwini, $ 45 biliyoni ku inshuwalansi ya boma, ndi $ 12 biliyoni mu ndalama zakunja kwa odwala.

Kupweteka kosalekeza, mokulirapo, kumakhala kokwera mtengo ndipo kumathandizira ku zovuta zina zaumoyo, kuphatikizapo mliri wa opioid. Kafukufuku wam'mbuyomu wa Johns Hopkins mu Journal of Pain adapeza kuti kupweteka kosalekeza kumatha kuwononga ndalama zokwana $ 635 biliyoni pachaka - kuposa mtengo wapachaka wa khansa, matenda amtima ndi shuga kuphatikiza.

Dr. Beth Darnall, mlangizi wamkulu wa sayansi ya AppliedVR ndi wasayansi wa ululu wa Stanford anati: "Kafukufuku wathu akuwonetsa kuti VR imatha kukulitsa chisamaliro chambiri cha 'munthu wathunthu' chomwe anthu angagwiritse ntchito momasuka m'nyumba zawo. Monga mtsogoleri wagulu lazamankhwala ozama, AppliedVR tsopano ndiyomwe ili bwino kwambiri kuti ipangitse kusintha kwamalingaliro kupita ku chisamaliro chopezeka chowawa. ”

Kutsatira chivomerezo chake choyamba cha FDA, AppliedVR ikukonzekera kupitiriza kuyesa kuti iwonetse mphamvu zachipatala ndi zotsika mtengo zogwiritsira ntchito VR pochiza ululu, makamaka pomaliza maphunziro angapo azachuma ndi zotsatira (HEOR) ndi olipira malonda. AppliedVR ikugwirizananso ndi Geisinger ndi Cleveland Clinic kuti apititse patsogolo mayesero osiyanasiyana omwe amathandizidwa ndi NIDA omwe amayesa VR ngati chida chochepetsera opioid pakumva ululu wopweteka kwambiri.

AppliedVR imadaliridwa kale ndi machitidwe opitilira 200 azaumoyo padziko lonse lapansi. Ukadaulowu wagwiritsidwa ntchito ndi odwala pafupifupi 60,000 mpaka pano pakuwongolera zowawa komanso mapulogalamu aumoyo.
