For the first time in Russia, hand prostheses were taught to convey sensations from touch

This was reported in the press service of the Skolkovo Foundation, of which the company is a resident. This project was developed by specialists from the Medical Center of the Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU) and the Zelman Skoltech Center for Neurobiology and Neurorehabilitation. Electrodes were inserted into the peripheral nerve in order to eliminate the problem of phantom pain in amputees. In addition, it allowed the transmission of touch sensations with the help of the prosthesis.

Neuromodulation is a potential treatment option for chronic pain that can alter maladaptive neuroplasticity and enhance descending inhibitory pathways. The use of feedback prostheses helps to reduce phantom pain. Mapping phantom sensitivity in perspective will allow us to program the stimulation to specific parameters ”, – said Artur Biktimirov, neurosurgeon at the FEFU Medical Center.
