We often get sent Research projects which will help inform the whole community. The Amputee Community needs more research, the more research the better powers that be and NHS providers know exactly what amputees need. Your time and efforts spent completing these are absolutely key to ensuring new treatments/physio are implemented.
Here’s some active projects:
- STUFF THAT WORKS – Community Hub where individuals share symptoms and things that have worked on phantom pain and residual limb pain. It is a great collaborative space for everyone to help one another. The more contributors the better chance to ensure more research is commissioned to make a real difference to treatment. https://www.stuffthatworks.health/phantom-limb-syndrome
- We are collaborating with Essex University on Scientific Research for Limb Difference Community – click here to become a participant and receive Amazon vouchers for your input: https://sites.google.com/view/research-for-limb-difference
Research participants needed:Do you have an amputation (including any level or multiple amputations)?Do you currently perform less than two and half hours of sport or exercise a week?Are you over 18 years of age, and based in the UK?
