Abstract: In this study, we propose an intervention program based on virtual reality (VR) for the treatment of pediatric patients who have suffered from burns, based on the scientific contributions that have shown the effectiveness of VR at reducing the pain caused by injuries. The program is structured in two phases: I) Information/Preparation. The process and expected effects will be explained to patients; and II) Intervention. In this phase, in order to observe the differential effects of virtual reality, patients will be divided into two groups: Group a) will receive training on imagination/distraction techniques and Group b) will be treated with VR. Based on the emotional effect caused by burns, the application of VR technology is expected to reduce the anxiety which young patients experience, favoring control and pain management during medical procedures and avoiding anticipation of pain.
