My name is Karena Moore-Millar I'm a product design PhD. Student at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow. I'm working as part of a specialist collaborative team at the University, looking at enhancing wig technologies for long term medical users, like myself, with Alopecia.
Purpose of investigation
The purpose of this study is to capture record and translate wig user requirements; needs wants and desires, in order to inform and enhance wig design and technologies.
I'm looking to recruit 30 - 100 volunteers across the United Kingdom (UK) with long term medical hair loss, to complete an online questionnaire about personal experiences of acquiring, using, maintaining and disposing of wigs. You will receive a £10 shopping voucher from either Amazon or M&S for your completed questionnaire.
