Sensory Feedback for Prosthetic Hand Users

The proposed project targets the restoration of a natural sense of touch to persons using hand prostheses. Current myoelectrical upper limb prostheses normally lack tactile feedback, which limits their functionalities and user acceptance. This work proposes a non-invasive tactile sensory feedback system, consisting of miniaturized sensors, wireless communication module and mechanical actuators.
