The design of the paediatric prosthesis

Boekbijdrage - Hoofdstuk

Ondertitel:assessment of stigma-inducing factors in primary school children, using a questionnaire
This study is the first to examine prosthesis design and appearance in healthy children towards prosthesis for children using a questionnaire. 119 typically developing children between the age of seven and twelve years were included. Their reactions were evoked by priming them to several types of assistive devices. Most of the participants clearly preferred the electrical prosthesis, proving the uncanny valley is applicable to primary school children. The life-like prosthesis was chosen three times more in the girl group, in contrast with the boys who rather prefer the robotic prosthesis and the self-drafted prosthesis. As age increased, a shift was observed from appearance to functionality. Results can be used to minimize stigma and enhance compliance of assistive aids in children with an upper limb reduction.
