GROUND-BREAKING HELP TO AMPUTEES

GROUND-BREAKING HELP TO AMPUTEES

Phantom limb pain is a massive problem for many amputees. A research project at SMI will now investigate new treatment methods to relieve the pain and improve the quality of life of the amputees

The project is headed by Professor Winnie Jensen and is funded by EU. The project is performed in cooperation with partners from Italy, France, Germany, Spain, Switzerland, Sweden and USA.

The researchers are now seeking amputees who are willing to enter the research project where they will receive electrical impulses, either applied through electrodes placed on the skin or through electrodes implanted in the nerve pathways.
