We understand pain and anxiety affects your biology, your psychology and your socialization. Flowly touches on all three. Engage in bio and psycho techniques for managing pain and anxiety, keep track of your progress, and experience it all with a supportive community. And you get it to do it in Virtual Reality.
How does it work?
Manage Pain and Anxiety through VR and Relaxation Training
Flowly offers Virtual Reality (VR) experiences that engage you in biofeedback for relaxation training. That means, with a VR headset and sensor (we send you for free with every subscription), you will be able to monitor and adjust how you breathe, how you focus, and learn how to better regulate your own nervous system. All while immersed in beautiful and relaxing VR environments.
Keep Track of your Progress
Flowly will collect and analyze your progress through each session. You can keep track of everything from your pain and anxiety levels, to how your heart rate changes day to day.
Share in the Community
Managing pain and anxiety is often an isolating experience. Flowly wants to create a safe and supportive space where members can share and engage with one another through positive and information-based forums.
Why does it work?
Flowly marries two powerful approaches to pain and anxiety management: biofeedback for relaxation training and Virtual Reality. There are over 1,000+ studies dedicated to biofeedback and Virtual Reality therapies. Flowly itself is partnered with UPMC and USC for upcoming clinical trials with a grant awarded by the National Institute of Health (NIH) and National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA).
Safe and Easy to Use
Flowly is completely non-invasive, digital, and fits in your pocket. The external VR headset and sensor are slip-on’s and clip-on’s, and easily removable. Throughout hundreds of user tests, no users have reported negative side effects.
Flowly’s mission is to take typically inaccessible therapies like biofeedback and Virtual Reality, and put it (literally) in the hands of the people who need it most. That means you can use Flowly in bed, at work, even pulled over on the side of the road (yes, some of our users have done that when they had a bad pain flare up!)
