UK Amputees sought for research project by a PhD student at De Montfort University.

Matilda Hanjari’s research explores how culture, religion and spirituality shape perceptions, experiences and practices of the disposal of amputated limbs in the UK. You can find more details on the project by clicking on the link at the bottom of this post.

Matilda is looking for amputees living in the UK who are over 18 years to take part in interviews for her research. The interview questions will seek to provide insight on peoples cultural, spiritual/religious experiences and perspectives on amputation and disposal of amputated limbs. The interview should take no more than an hour and can either be conducted by telephone or video on Microsoft Teams. Participants will receive a £10 high street gift voucher as a ‘thank you’ for taking part in the interview.

Please find attached participant information sheet and study advert.

I kindly ask for your help to take part in an interview. Matilda Hanjari

Best wishes

UK Amputees Sought for Research Project


If you are a UK based upper or lower limb amputee and over 18, please do help Matilda with her research if you can. A lot of these studies go on to increase awareness and understanding which can be of great benefit to other amputees. As far as I’m aware, this is the first time this aspect of the disposal of amputated limbs has been researched. It will be fascinating to see the outcome of Matilda’s project.
