What is Reducept?
Louis Zantema, pain specialist and co-founder of Reducept, explains together with a patient what Reducept is and how it contributes to a long-term reduction of pain symptoms.
How does it work?
Patient with chronic pain symptoms comes in for treatment
Start Reducept in accordance with the IASP Guidelines for Pain Management at the beginning of the treatment
As part of the IASP Guidelines for Pain Management, the patient receives pain education. Reducept offers a visual translation of pain education in a virtual reality environment. This visual support helps patients to better understand the concept of chronic pain. When a patient understands how this pain works in the body, he or she is more able to manage the pain. Due to this, the efficiency of the treatment process increases.
Reducept has been developed in collaboration with both the healthcare professional and the patient. The pain education is delivered in accordance with the IASP Guidelines for Pain Management and is based on, amongst others, the “Explain Pain" theory by Mosely & Butler.

Increase in therapy compliance: patients are more involved in the treatment
Patients with chronic pain have often taken many steps already to find the origin of their pain. Due to previous disappointments, it is possible that the patient becomes less involved in the treatment process.
The combination of virtual reality and game elements makes patients enthusiastic about getting started with their own treatment.
Combine Reducept with your treatment process
Reducept is a part of your treatment. You can also decide to allow the patient to use Reducept at home. Then, the patient is able to decide when he or she wants to use Reducept.
Through an automated measuring system, you can see which oy your patients are using Reducept. Moreover, you can easily track the progress made by the patients, including their filled-in pain scores.
In practice, this results in an increased range of motion, a deepening of the conversation and a change in perspective on pain after using Reducept. Reducept consists of different game elements that can be played separately without supervision. You can read more about this in the whitepaper.
At home, the patients know how to manage their pain
By combining your treatment process with Reducept, the patient develops new strategies to manage pain. The patient learns to apply these strategies in his or her daily life.
Experiences with Reducept
As a result of playing the VR game, I notice a decrease in my pain symptoms. By playing I can relax. This has a positive effect on my pain.
Reducept helps me to better understand my pain, to combat the pain through game elements and to clearly reduce the pain score due to the presence of the distraction elements. In my experience, Reducept contributes to a better quality of life.
I have tried a lot of things that did not work for me, so it says a lot that I am making progress with this.
