Future Meetings and Workshops

Research Workshop: The psychology of upper-limb prosthetic use. To be held at Manchester Metropolitan University. 19 March 2019

The human hand is remarkable, and the loss of an upper limb represents a huge challenge for one’s sensorimotor system. To address this challenge, we will bring together psychologists, prosthetists, bioengineers, and prosthetic-users to present and discuss work which furthers our understanding of the psychology of upper limb prosthetic use.

This day-long workshop will take place on the 19th of March 2019 at Manchester Metropolitan University, immediately prior to Trent International Prosthetics Symposium which is being held in the same city.

Further details, including registration and abstract submission, can be found here:  https://prostheticsworkshop.wixsite.com/event

Organisers: Gavin Buckingham, Sam Vine and Greg Wood
