Event description

Description

Are you aged over 18 and do you wear a prosthetic limb? We need your help with a study exploring sensory preference for prosthetic limbs.

The study is led by Caitlin McMullan, a designer, researcher and below knee amputee, and Sarah Wilkes, a materials researcher at the Institute of Making.

In the study we will be exploring how the choice of materials offered for prosthetic limbs affects your experience of them, and whether particular materials or textures stimulate phantom limb sensations.

Your input is crucial for directing this research, which aims to better understand people’s sensory and material preferences in prosthetic limbs. The results from the study will be fed back to clinicians, prosthetists and manufacturers, with the potential to inform the design of prosthetic limbs.

If you choose to take part in this study, you will be invited to an individual materials handling session at the CCA in Glasgow which will last a maximum of 2 hours.

We will reimburse your travel costs and pay £7.50/hour for your time.

Thank you for considering taking part!
