TITAN – a clinical trial for phantom limb pain

Status: Recruiting

Many people who have a limb amputation report that they can still feel their limb or have pain in the limb that is no longer there. Having pain in the limb that is no longer there is called phantom limb pain. 

Phantom limb pain is a rare condition that affects 1 in every 4000 people in Australia, and up to 80% of people with limb loss. Currently, there are no interventions that provide meaningful pain relief for people with phantom limb pain.

The TITAN trial will investigate two potentially effective non-drug treatments for phantom limb pain. Participants will be randomised to receive either a progressive rehabilitation program or stimulation device program.

TITAN, a definitive clinical trial of a promising new intervention, will provide meaningful change to the management of phantom limb pain.
