Abstract

Many of the large surveys and reports on which this information is based were conducted on a population of amputees who were veterans of the United States and other military forces. This is a selected group, so the results could be biased. However, our work with people whose amputations were not related to the military provided results similar to those in the above surveys (Nyström & Hagbarth, 1981), and other workers have recently confirmed similar rates of occurrence in other populations (Sherman & Arena, 1992; Sherman, Arena, & Ernst, 1990). Thus, we feel that our results are representative of the general amputee population. Figure 1 illustrates typical phantom sensations.
