Haptic Biofeedback for Myoelectric Prosthesis Training

Recent efforts to integrate sensory feedback into upper limb prostheses have focused on substituting exteroceptive sensations like touch and texture. However, little has been done to address the idea that feedback and control of a prosthesis are exquisitely linked. In fact, the nature of using EMG signals as a controller introduces uncertainty into the system. … More Haptic Biofeedback for Myoelectric Prosthesis Training


Goals and Scope Investigate the use of vibrotactile haptic feedback to improve texture recognition for upper limb amputees wearing prostheses. Due to time and resource limitations, we aim to emulate such an experience on able-bodied subjects holding a plastic hand. Build a prototype that provides haptic feedback for texture identification for at least three different … More HAPTICS FOR TEXTURE IDENTIFICATION
