This papers reviews the development and evidence for the efficacy of virtual reality in the treatment of phantom limb pain experienced by most people following amputation of a limb. The theoretical and empirical antecedents to this development are outlined, followed by consideration of the characteristics and empirical work of three systems which have been reported in academic literature. The paper concludes with a critique of these systems and offer suggestions for future work.
