What’s the deal with Reducept?
Reducept trains the brain to reduce pain. For this we use scientific knowledge about Virtual Reality, pain education and psychology (1-8). By cleverly combining these three, we have developed our unique training!
Train your brain!
Reducept functions like a gym for your brain (but without muscular machos). By exercising regularly, you can teach your brain to increase control and reduce pain. Train towards a ‘muscular’ brain that has more grip on your pain in the long term (2-8)!
For those who like to know and understand
There is already a lot of evidence that using VR training has a positive effect on pain (1). Together with leading institutions (6) we have scientifically substantiated that Reducept has a real effect on the lives of people with pain complaints. And, good news: while we keep getting positive responses from our users, you can also already try it for yourself!
