The project was completed in 2017 but major publications were issued in 2018 and 2019 reporting the most important results of both stimulation of the upper and lower limbs in amputees to restore sensations using 4 TIME electrodes. We developed original algorithms that convert signals acquired from sensors of the artificial lower limb, namely the prosthetic limb, into stimulus to the afferent branches of the sciatic nerve. This pioneering work shows that not only the gait performances were greatly enhanced but also the phantom pain relief was effective with a long lasting after stopping the therapy [22] [21]. These results follows the previous ones pbtained on the upper limb with similar results [23].
