|NCT02569918 : Use of Hand Prosthesis With Surface Electrical Stimulation for Treatment of Phantom Limb Pain|
|Ages||Min: 18 Years Max: 70 Years|
- Transradial amputation.
- Amputation should be in the chronic, stable phase, such that the stump has healed and
the person apart from eventual phantom pain (PLP).
- Other treatments for PLP tried with poor results.
- Patient accepts the study protocol as explained by the physician.

(NRS) or visual analog scale (VAS) (0-10 scale). The frequency of PLP episodes
presents more than once a week.
- Amputee subjects without PLP are eligible for part of the study that targets the

- History of or active substance abuse disorder
- Acquired brain injury with residual impairment
- Intellectual Disability (IQ < 70)
- Prior neurological or musculoskeletal disease
- Current or prior dermatological conditions
