Abstract

Non-invasive sensory feedback is a desirable goal for upper limb prostheses as well as in human robot interaction and other human machine interfaces. Yet many approaches have been studied, none has been broadly deployed in upper limb prostheses. Bone conduction has the potential to excite an effect known as osseoperception and therefore provides a novel sensory interface. This paper presents the preliminary results of our study into the temporal parameters of a sensory feedback interface utilizing vibrotactile stimulus onto the ulnar olecranon representing a non-invasive sensory feedback interface. Three different tests are performed to establish the characterizing parameters of the interfac..
