Harvard Medtech is an innovative Digital Health company that is pioneering new approaches to chronic pain management, in lieu of using opioids. The company has put together a comprehensive Bio-Psycho-Social program, anchored by utilizing Virtual Reality for its analgesic properties, that is a healthier, more holistic approach than using addictive pharmaceuticals. The company’s program is successfully helping newly injured patients avoid or minimize the need for addictive opioids. For patients already opioid dependent, it can successfully help motivated patients wean off of opioids altogether, or at least reduce their usage to clinically manageable levels.
