Tuning of parameters for a vibrotactile kinaesthetic feedback system utilizing tactile illusions

Publikation: KonferenzbeitragPoster


Kinaesthetic and haptic somatosensory feedback is an integral part of the natural movement feedback loop. Afflictions like spinal cord injury potentially disrupt both efferent and afferent pathways, and thus neuroprosthesis research must address both control and feedback. Artificial somatosensory feedback has great potential to inform the user in an intuitive way and facilitate the integration of a prosthesis into their body image.
Our aim is to provide kinaesthetic feedback of arm movements via a sparse grid of vibrating actuators, manipulating actuator intensities in such a way that tactile illusions of temporally and spatially continuous movement are evoked. To this end, we examine parameter spaces of apparent tactile motion and phantom sensations, in order to design a comprehensive feedback system.
