Help Veterans with Amputations Receive Life-Changing Device

Veterans give so much to protect our country. Now, it’s our time to give back! 

In 2016, the VA medical centers treated nearly 90,000 veterans with amputations. Of those, 42 percent had amputations related to their military service.

For many amputees, long-term support and care –including rehabilitation and pain management – is needed due to conditions such as phantom limb pain (PLP). PLP refers to ongoing painful sensations that seem to be coming from the part of the limb that is no longer there. The limb is gone, but the pain is real.

My device, ELIX ,  specifically addresses phantom limb pain by stimulating periphery sensory nerves with vibrations. The vibrations activate large sensory nerve fibers, which carry touch and pressure stimulation to the brain. Activation of these large sensory nerve fibers closes the pain gate, thus inhibiting pain signals from reaching the brain.

Help us help our veterans. Your contribution will help us manufacture and donate 100 ELIX wearables to veterans who are suffering from PLP.

All contributions will go towards:

Materials & Supplies 
Product Development 
Manufacturing 

Every $220 raised equates to an ELIX device given to a veteran in need.
