‘Somebody stuck me in a bag of sand’: Lived experiences of the altered and uncomfortable body after stroke (2021)
Journal Article
Stott, H., Cramp, M., McClean, S., & Turton, A. (2021). ‘Somebody stuck me in a bag of sand’: Lived experiences of the altered and uncomfortable body after stroke. Clinical Rehabilitation, 35(9), 1348-1359. https://doi.org/10.1177/02692155211000740

Objective: This study explored stroke survivors’ experiences of altered body perception, whether these perceptions cause discomfort, and the need for clinical interventions to improve comfort. Design: A qualitative phenomenological study. Setting: Pa... Read More about ‘Somebody stuck me in a bag of sand’: Lived experiences of the altered and uncomfortable body after stroke.

Assessing and addressing ethical risk from anthropomorphism and deception in socially assistive robots (2021)
Conference Proceeding
Winkle, K., Caleb-Solly, P., Leonards, U., Turton, A., & Bremner, P. (2021). Assessing and addressing ethical risk from anthropomorphism and deception in socially assistive robots. https://doi.org/10.1145/3434073.3444666

In this paper we apply the recent concept of robot Ethical Risk Assessment to an exemplar Socially Assistive Robot (SAR); specifically considering ethical risks posed by anthropomorphism in this context. We draw on two complimentary studies to demons... Read More about Assessing and addressing ethical risk from anthropomorphism and deception in socially assistive robots.

Management of hemiplegic shoulder pain: A UK-wide online survey of physiotherapy and occupational therapy practice (2020)
Journal Article
Kumar, P., Turton, A., Cramp, M., Smith, M., & McCabe, C. (2021). Management of hemiplegic shoulder pain: A UK-wide online survey of physiotherapy and occupational therapy practice. Physiotherapy Research International, 26(1), https://doi.org/10.1002/pri.1874

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to explore, via an online survey, how therapists assess, diagnose and manage hemiplegic shoulder pain (HSP) in the United Kingdom. The objectives were to explore (1) how therapists assessed HSP, (2) what the aim...

Effective persuasion strategies for socially assistive robots (2019)
Conference Proceeding
Winkle, K., Lemaignan, S., Caleb-Solly, P., Turton, A., Leonards, U., & Bremner, P. (2019). Effective persuasion strategies for socially assistive robots. In Proceedings of the 2019 ACM/IEEE Human-Robot Interaction Conference, (277-285). https://doi.org/10.1109/HRI.2019.8673313

In this paper we present the results of an experimental study investigating the application of human persuasive strategies to a social robot. We demonstrate that robot displays of goodwill and similarity to the participant significantly increased rob... Read More about Effective persuasion strategies for socially assistive robots.

Mutual shaping in the design of socially assistive robots: A case study on social robots for therapy (2019)
Journal Article
Winkle, K., Caleb-Solly, P., Turton, A., & Bremner, P. (2020). Mutual shaping in the design of socially assistive robots: A case study on social robots for therapy. International Journal of Social Robotics, 12, 847-866. https://doi.org/10.1007/s12369-019-00536-9

This paper offers a case study in undertaking a mutual shaping approach to the design of socially assistive robots. We consider the use of social robots in therapy, and we present our results regarding this application, but the approach is generalisa...

Altered body perception and comfort after stroke: An embodied interpretive phenomenological analysis (2019)
Conference Proceeding
Stott, H., Cramp, M., McClean, S., & Turton, A. (2019). Altered body perception and comfort after stroke: An embodied interpretive phenomenological analysis. https://doi.org/10.1177/1609406918819362

Stroke can cause changes to how the body is perceived, and survivors often experience altered sense of limb position, movement, sensation, weight, awareness, and pain. However, there is little literature capturing experiential accounts of these chang...

Exploring altered body perception and comfort after stroke: An interpretive phenomenological analysis (2018)
Journal Article
Stott, H., Cramp, M., McClean, S., & Turton, A. (2018). Exploring altered body perception and comfort after stroke: An interpretive phenomenological analysis. Clinical Rehabilitation, 32(10), 1406-1417. https://doi.org/10.1177/0269215518784346

Background: After stroke, changes to body perception are common. However, little is known about what these disturbed perceptions feel like to the stroke survivor. This study took a phenomenological approach to explore experiences of altered body per...

Social robots for engagement in rehabilitative therapies: Design implications from a study with therapists (2018)
Presentation / Conference
Design implications from a study with therapists. Paper presented at 2018 ACM/IEEE International Conference on Human-Robot Interaction

In this paper we present the results of a qualitative study with therapists to inform social robotics and human robot interaction (HRI) for engagement in rehabilitative therapies. Our results add to growing evidence that socially assistive robots (SA... Read More about Social robots for engagement in rehabilitative therapies: Design implications from a study with therapists.

Is a Lycra sleeve an acceptable treatment for glenohumeral subluxation in people with stroke: Patients, clinicians and family members’ perspectives (2018)
Presentation / Conference
Kumar, P., Jones, R., Easton, C., & Turton, A. (2018, February). Is a Lycra sleeve an acceptable treatment for glenohumeral subluxation in people with stroke: Patients, clinicians and family members’ perspectives. Poster presented at Society for Research in Rehabilitation, 40th Anniversary

Background: Glenohumeral subluxation (GHS) is a common post-stroke complication reported to occur in up to 81% of patients. It presents considerable challenges to the rehabilitation of the upper limb; impeding recovery of shoulder function. There i...
