Neck/Hand vibration

A form of intervention for USN that involves the use of trans-cuteneous electrical stimulation (TENS) to produce vibrations on the neck or hand. For persons experiencing USN, when TENS is applied on the neck and hand of their affected side, proprioceptive input from the neck muscles (i.e. the head-on-trunk signal) appear to influence visual scanning of the neglected hemispace.
