The company recently became the first to receive FDA authorization for treating pain – specifically its RelieVRx product indicated as adjunctive treatment for chronic lower back pain. Moving forward, AppliedVR will continue to build out the device distribution infrastructure to support broad market entry next year while also pursuing reimbursement pathways with multiple payers and conducting more clinical testing to demonstrate the efficacy of its products. The company also plans to explore label expansions to support more indications in the near future.
AppliedVR is hiring nationally across multiple teams and expects to grow its workforce by approximately 50 percent in the next year. For more information, please visit the AppliedVR careers page.
