- Public TitleVR during experimental pain
- Scientific TitleThe role of executive functions in the efficacy of VR as pain relief during experimental pain
- ACRONYM
- hypothesisVirtual Reality (VR) as distraction technique is promising as pain relief. The extent to which VR is effective in relieving pain depends on the extent of presence in the virtual world. This study investigates if the quality of different executive functions and the presence of catastrophizing thoughts influences the presence in the virtual world and herewith the effect of VR on pain.
- Healt Condition(s) or Problem(s) studiedExperimental pain, Distraction, Virtual Reality
- Inclusion criteriaHealthy adults between 18 and 75 years old.
- Exclusion criteriaLimited sight or hearing, limited communication skills, acute or chronic pain, Phenomenon of Raynaud, cardiovascular disorders, hypertension, endocrine, metabolic and neurologic disorders, musculoskeletal disorders, epilepsy, psychiatric diagnoses, current injuries to the hands, use of medication, pregnancy, use of alcohol or drugs 24 hours before participation

- Target number of participants78
- InterventionsInteractive VR computerbased distraction through 3D head mounted display
- Primary outcome1) the distraction technique is significantly associated with the VAS-pain score
2) the distraction technique is significantly associated with the tolerance time
- Secondary outcome3) the executive functions and catastrophizing thoughts have a moderating role in the expected relation of the distraction technique and VAS pain score
4) the VAS presence score predicts the VAS pain score
5) the VAS presence score predicts the tolerance time
6) the executive functions predict the VAS presence score
7) the distraction technique predicts the VAS presence score

- Brief summaryVirtual Reality as distraction technique is promising in reducing the pain experience. The extent to which VR is effective in reducing pain depends on the extent to which someone is present in the virtual world. This study investigates if the quality of different executive functions (inhibition, divided attention and working memory) and the degree of catastrophizing thoughts influences the presence in the virtual world and herewith the effect on pain.
