The unique story of a pioneer in digital therapies

HypnoVR was born in Strasbourg, led by the conviction, expertise and shared entrepreneurial energy of Dr Denis Graff and Dr Chloé Chauvin.

They are both doctors specialising in anaesthesia, intensive care and hypnosis, enthused by their clinical practice and scientific and technological progress. It was while observing on a daily basis the efficacy of medical hypnosis on the pain and anxiety of their patients that they realised the potential of virtual reality and passionately wanted to make it accessible to the greatest number.

Very soon they were joined by Nicolas Schaettel as CEO and the project enjoyed rapid success. It evolved into the institution of a solid team of 18 persons with complementary expertise. A number of technological, clinical and scientific partnerships have been established and our solution has been awarded many prizes (Innovation Award from CES Unveiled, Prize for Innovation from the ADF and the AFC, …). Our solution has increasingly aroused interest from hospitals and clinics.

Today, HypnoVR has already won over more than 200 clients and has become a leader inbits field.
