Sensory Feedback System for Lower-limb Amputees Using Vibrotactile Haptics

Artificial Sensory Substitution

Summary

Following lower-limb amputation, patients suffer from sensory loss within the prosthesis/residuum complex. This leads to diminished proprioception and balance which are important toward achieving safe and efficient mobility. The goal of this work is to develop an artificial system for sensory substitution.
