A UK based company in collaboration with a UK University have developed a medical device that will address the lack of effective treatment for Phantom Limb Pain (PLP), which is a debilitating condition affecting up to 80% of amputees. The pain is persistent and impairs daily living, quality of life and in many cases the ability to work. Drug therapies and other alternative therapies such as hypnosis, acupuncture and massage are known to have limited effect.
The development of a self-applied, software led medical device that delivers the required stimulus and feedback is based upon the principles of Sensory Discrimination Training eliminates the need for a therapist to deliver the treatment and can be used in the patient’s own home.
They are now looking for a company with Clinical Research Expertise in the Medical Device Sector. They should have the capacity to deliver a mixed method, single-blind, randomised, placebo-controlled study with 80 participants.
