Welcome to the Dublin Psychoprosthetics Group
The Dublin Psychoprosthetics Group is a unique multidisciplinary team of researchers and clinicians interested in applying many and varied aspects of psychology to prosthetic use, especially in regard to the rehabilitation of people with amputations.
It is a co-directed project between Dublin City University, Ireland, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, and National University of Ireland Maynooth.
We are interested in establishing links with national and international colleagues who may wish to collaborate with us on future projects.
Psychoprosthetics is the study of the psychological aspects of prosthetic use and of rehabilitative processes in those conditions that require the use of prosthetic devices.
You can read more about psychoprosthetics in the book recently authored by members of the DPG.
For a recent review of the Psychoprosthetics volume, you can read the review in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).
