Abstract:Chronic pain is pain that lasts longer than three months and it can arise from an injury and affects millions of people worldwide. Roessingh Research and Development (RRD) have developed the Virep project which is a virtual reality game to improve the training of chronic pain both in the clinical and home settings. This research and graduation projects will develop an extension of the Virep project by creating a virtual reality relaxation environment. This project will go through some iterative design testing in order to find the best result of creating a relaxation environment. The final relaxation environment was created so that the user biosignals would be mimicked in the environment and they had to listen to their own bodies and the virtual reality world in order to decrease their heart rate. The final environment proved to achieve the goal of relaxation but testing needs to be continued on people who have chronic back pain.
