What happens if the headset malfunctions during use?

Can the devices run out of battery?
Our user guides recommend battery thresholds below which the device should not be used. The devices can be easily recharged. For example, it takes 90 minutes to fully charge a Samsung Galaxy S7, and 1 hour 50 minutes to achieve 24 hours of battery life with the Bose headphones. It is possible to operate the device while the Samsung S7 is charging, but you will need a USB Type-C to Micro USB cable, which is not available with the Samsung S7 or the Gear VR.
Doesn’t Bluetooth cause problems with connected electrical devices?
No, an electromagnetic test was carried out, and it showed that using Bluetooth does not affect other medical equipment.

Is the healthcare professional able to see what the patient sees inside the headset?

Is an internet connection required while using the software?
No, an internet connection is not required while using the device. A Wi-Fi connection is only required to download the app and content updates.
What happens if a procedure in which HypnoVR is being used takes longer than expected?
If the practitioner is anticipating a relatively long procedure, he or she can choose the duration that includes a loop mechanism, so the session can last for as long as necessary.
Does HypnoVR replace anesthesia during a procedure?
Most of the time, HypnoVR is used as an adjunct to anesthesia during a procedure. However, HypnoVR does allow a significant reduction in the drug doses used while also maintaining patient comfort. HypnoVR is also used outside the operating room and/or during painful or anxiety-inducing procedures for which an anesthesiologist is not necessarily always present.
