Has anyone ever heard of Farabloc. It is a fabric made with woven stainless steel threads. My prosthetist recommended that I try it out on my residual limb, which is only 4 weeks old. It's kind of like a sock and I wear it over my shrinker sock. I've had this thing on for only about 24 hours but I have not had any pain, or phantom pain since I put the thing on. Before that I was having enough pain to still be taking meds and some pretty impressive phantom pains and sensations. My prosthetist says that if it works for me it can be intergrated into whatever liner or socket I end up with. So far, this is too good to be real.
