The Future of Phantom Limb Therapy with Virtual Reality | Ragini Dindukurthi | TEDxPortland

Up to 80% of amputees suffer from phantom limb pain, but standard treatment methods are only moderately successful. Virtual reality serves as a promising frontier for alleviating their pain. With special thanks to the UNIVERSITY OF OREGON for presenting partnership, a world class stage design provided by HENRY V, an incredible legacy bound book provided by PREMIER and to the creative digital craft provided by ENJOY THE WEATHER. All of our Partners and event history can be found TEDxPortland.com In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations) Ragini is a freshman at Westview High School in Portland and loves the challenge of identifying problems and working toward solutions. She also has a passion for fashion and co-founded the fashion club, Wildcat Couture. She loves robotics and designing things and plans to pursue a career in product design engineering. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
