About Research project
Our 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 due to sensorimotor impairments and this position is related to the translational research related to this work, as well as brain imagining studies.
