Early Research Makes Way for Future Treatments for Phantom Limb Pain

Dick Jones Communications

Electrical stimulation on the skin surface at the elbow can produce feeling in the hand—including rare “natural” sensations—according to a study just published in the Journal of Rehabilitation Research and Development. The hope is that surface electrical stimulation (SES) may someday be harnessed to provide “natural sensations” in body areas distant from where the stimulation occurs. If this could happen, it would lead to improved treatment for phantom limb pain, according to Katharine H. Polasek, assistant professor of engineering at Hope College in Holland, MI.
