Have you been using an upper limb prosthesis? - PhD research participation request (University of Sa

Hi everyone,

For any upper limb prosthesis users (or if you know any who might be interested) can you please read below about my final PhD research study, which I hope you will consider participating in! This is a follow-up study to a previous interviews study with prosthesis users, which I posted on here a year ago.

Thanks,

Andrew


Have you been using an upper limb prosthesis? - Research participation request

 

If so, we are interested to hear from you about your experiences of this and participate in research from the University of Salford – ‘An exploration of factors associated with embodiment of upper limb prostheses’.

 

The aim of this study is to explore whether specific factors are associated with upper limb prosthesis embodiment (the feeling of the prosthesis being ‘part of’ you). We hope this will develop understanding of prosthesis embodiment and have important implications for prosthetic design and/or rehabilitation.

 

The research involves completion of a short anonymous online survey, covering a range of feelings towards your prosthesis along with some background questions.

 

We hope to hear from anyone who is 18 or above and who has an upper-limb prosthesis.

 

Please follow this link to a survey detailing full information for you to read and decide if you wish to participate.

 

Recruitment from 23/10/18 to 17/02/19 –

Many thanks,

    Hi to any upper-limb prosthesis users (or anyone who knows someone using such a prosthesis),


    For any upper-limb prosthesis users who see this in time, my final PhD research study is sadly ending and am seeking final participants. The advert mentions closing 17th but the offical close time is Monday 10am UK time.


    Please read above which I hope you will consider participating in! This is a follow-up study to a previous interviews study with prosthesis users, and is really important to gain as many responses in a larger group for this survey. I really appreciate any support.


    Thanks,


    Andrew
