Phantom limb pain project receives funding from Medtech4Health call
MedTech West is one of the nodes for the national strategic innovation program Medtech4Health, who´s first call, Medicintekniska innovationer inom vård och omsorg, is now completed, and all applicants are informed. Over 100 applications were received, but only 15 projects have been awarded grants. Max Ortiz Catalan, assistant professor at the department of Signals and Systems, Chalmers University of Technology, and the principle investigator for one of the awarded projects says:
– Our project is about a novel treatment for phantom limb pain using machine learning and augmented reality. The project will be multi-disciplinary; a collaboration with Sahlgrenska University Hospital, Örebro University Hospital, BräckeDiakoni Rehabcenter Sfären, and Integrum AB.
We would like to congratulate Max and his research team to the funding!
