WAVR is Wide Awake Virtual Reality.
WAVR is a better and safer way for people to experience medical procedures without the need for sedatives. When patients use VR to mitigate against anxiety, providers can use immersive media content instead of narcotics in the comfort and safety of their offices.
Growing Problem with Overdose of Anesthesia
Anesthesia is over-utilized for surgeries that could be achieved under local anesthetic: WAVR will disrupt this expensive and dangerous practice by enabling awake surgery using Virtual Reality.
WAVR is Safer.
The Evidence for VR.
Studies: A superficial infection rate of 0.8% and a deep infection rate of 0% following Carpal Tunnel Release (CTR) using field sterility confirm the low incidence of postoperative wound infection using field sterility. This supports the safety and low incidence of postoperative wound infection in CTR using minor procedure field sterility without prophylactic antibiotics.
