Needham, W. E.; And Others
Journal of Visual Impairment and Blindness, v87 n9 p368-71 Nov 1993
A 39-year-old man who was blind, diabetic, and had a double amputation with chronic renal failure and peripheral vascular disease was treated with thermal biofeedback to reduce his depression through increased self-control, to minimize pain, and to facilitate healing of a pregangrenous hand. On treatment discharge, his mental and physical states were substantially improved. (DB)
