Toward an artificial sensory feedback system for prosthetic mobility rehabilitation: Examination of sensorimotor responses

Aman Sharma, MHSc, et al.

The focus of the research was Veterans with lowerlimb amputation who are currently limited in their abilities due to a lack of sensory information about the status of their prosthesis. This work explored the ability of nondisabled individuals and lowerlimb prosthetic users to respond to vibratory tactile feedback. This new information may ultimately help inform the design of an artificial sensory feedback system to augment proprioceptive and sensory information, which may be helpful in improving overall rehabilitation outcomes for people with lower-limb amputation.
