Touch the World With Prosthetics
Have you ever woken up after sleeping in an odd position and your arm feels tingly and numb? Living with a prosthesis is similar because amputees don't receive any touch (haptic) feedback when they touch something with their prosthesis. You will learn how to provide this feedback to them using simple pressure sensors and vibration motors.
