Evaluation of sensation evoked by electrocutaneous stimulation on forearm in nondisabled subjects

Bo Geng, MSc, et al.

Artificial limbs could be controlled more accu- rately and efficiently if they provided sensory feed- back. One way to create sensory feedback is by applying electrical stimulation to the skin. It is still not clear how to electrically stimulate in order to create specific sensations. Therefore, we need to better understand how stimulation parameters affect sensations. We evaluated the effects of four parameters on sensations in nondisabled participants. Our results yield practical recommendations for future use of sensory feedback in prostheses and for the design of sensory feedback schemes to treat phantom pain.
