Sensory Preference in Prosthetics

Thu 29 November — Fri 30 November 2018

Phantom Materials

Caitlin McMullan, a designer, researcher and below knee amputee, and Sarah Wilkes, a materials researcher at the Institute of Making are looking for amputees to take part in their sensory preference study for prosthetic limbs.

In the study they will be exploring how the choice of materials offered for prosthetic limbs affects your experience of them. Your input is crucial for directing the study, which aims to better understand people's sensory and material preferences in prosthetic limbs.

The results from this study will be fed back to clinicians, prosthetists and manufacturers, with the potential to inform the design of prosthetic limbs.

Travel expenses and your time will be reimbursed. For more information or to get involved then please contact
