Virtual Reality Prosthetics – Body and Mind
This event is part of an exciting new project funded by the Wellcome Trust, showcasing emerging technologies and cutting-edge multi-disciplinary research linking Biomedical Science, Psychology, Physiotherapy and Virtual Reality.
Join us to find out more about the use of VR technology to help people use their new prosthetics limbs, about how our brains control our movements, and contribute to the debate about limb loss versus society’s views of ‘normality’.
Hoping to see you there!
