Titel: "Brug af elektrisk overfladestimulation til lindring af fantomsmerter"

Krav til forsøgsperson: For at deltage i forsøget skal du være over 18 år, have gennemgået en amputation af din arm under skulderleddet, og du skal opleve kraftige fantomsmerter mindst én gang om ugen.
Forløb: Forsøget vil forløbe over en periode på tre måneder. Du skal deltage i to indledende samtaler og fire indledende målinger. Derefter vil du skulle møde dagligt i fire uger for at modtage den elektriske stimulation.

Titel: "Brug af invasiv elektrisk stimulation til lindring af fantomsmerter"

Krav til forsøgsperson: For at deltage i forsøget skal du være over 18 år, have gennemgået en amputation af din arm under skulderleddet, og du skal opleve kraftige fantomsmerter mindst én gang om ugen.
Forløb: Forsøget vil forløbe over en periode på fire måneder. Først vil vi monitorere dine fantomsmerter, derefter vil vi implantere nerve elektroder ind i overarmen på din amputerede arm. Du vil derefter igennem 4 uger modtage daglig stimulations terapi.

Requirements to participants: To participate in the study, you should be over 18 years old, have a one-sided amputation below the shoulder joint, and you should experience severe phantom limb pain at least once a week.
Course: The study will take place over a period of four months. First we will monitor your phantom limb pain, then we will implant nerve electrodes into the upper arm on your amputated side. After this, you will receive daily stimulation therapy during a period of four weeks.

Title: "Use of Hand Prosthesis With Direct Nerve Stimulation for Treatment of Phantom Limb Pain"

Requirements to participants: To participate in the study, you should be over 18 years old, have unilateral upper limb amputation in the forearm and have developed a high intensity phantom pain with stable characteristics lasting for more than six months, and not responding to any type of pharmacological or non-pharmacological therapy.
Course: The study will have a duration of up to one year. The patient will be engaged daily for the first six weeks of the study, excluding weekends. From the 7th to the 12th week the engagement will be limited to two consecutive days per week, while from the 13th week onwards until the end of the study the system will only be used one day a week.
