Marsau, who has over 25 years’ experience with workers’ compensation companies, is overseeing the RelieVRx® program launch into the industry.

LOS ANGELES: #chroniclowerbackpain--AppliedVR has appointed Michael Marsau its Executive Director of Workers’ Compensation. He is overseeing the launch of the company’s flagship RelieVRx® prescription therapeutic into the workers’ compensation market. In this role, he develops and implements sales, marketing, and account service strategies for the AppliedVR’s workers’ comp channel and directs those efforts.

“Managing pain and avoiding addiction are major concerns for payors,” Marsau said. “I am very excited about introducing them to a non-pharmacological solution for chronic lower back pain.”

Marsau has held executive positions in workers’ compensation medical management companies for over 25 years, beginning with Cypress Care, an ancillary care provider that is now part of Optum. Most recently, he served as Vice President of Pharmacy Solutions for myMatrixx.

“The RelieVRx program is a game-changer for workers’ comp,” Marsau said. “This is a self-managed, home-based virtual reality therapeutic. It’s safe, cost-effective, clinically proven to reduce chronic lower back pain, and it continues to work after the injured worker completes the sessions.”
