A device for the relief of phantom limb pain and rehabilitation in stroke

Glyn Walsh, Jonathan Bannister

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This study aimed to determine if simple, robust spectacle mounted devices are feasible for the replacement of the mirror boxes currently used in the rehabilitation of patients suffering from phantom limb pain, complex regional pain syndrome and stroke. Four devices, using three different optical systems were produced: plane mirror, astronomical telescope using cylindrical lenses and two reflecting prism systems.
