Translational research on novel devices for the treatment of pain along with brain imagining studies to elucidate the working mechanism of the treatments and the condition itself.
Information about the projectOur group developed a novel treatment for phantom limb pain (PLP) using myoelectric pattern recognition (machine learning) for the decoding of motor volition, and virtual and augmented reality for real-time biofeedback. This treatment is now used worldwide. However, we are now further developing technology to fully eliminate pain de due to sensorimotor impairments and this position is related to the translational research related to this work.
Literature reviews on devices, treatments, and epidemiology of pain.
Development and testing of medical devices.
Design and implementation of clinical trials.
Design and conduct brain imagining studies.
