This paper presents a novel system for tactile feedback integrating advanced sensorized glove and non- invasive stimulation interface. The system comprises a textile glove that integrates 64 sensors capable of capturing distributed tactile signals during usual manual activities, embedded interface electronics, multichannel simulator and non-invasive stimulation interface. Several experiments have been performed to test the capability of the system to capture and to deliver to the user static or dynamic patterns during manual interactions. The experiments demonstrated that the system successfully translated the mechanical interaction into electrotactile profiles within a delay of 32 ms, opening up interesting perspectives for wearable feedback systems for post-stroke rehabilitation.

Abstract

This paper presents a novel system for tactile feedback integrating advanced sensorized glove and non- invasive stimulation interface. The system comprises a textile glove that integrates 64 sensors capable of capturing distributed tactile signals during usual manual activities, embedded interface electronics, multichannel simulator and non-invasive stimulation interface. Several experiments have been performed to test the capability of the system to capture and to deliver to the user static or dynamic patterns during manual interactions. The experiments demonstrated that the system successfully translated the mechanical interaction into electrotactile profiles within a delay of 32 ms, opening up interesting perspectives for wearable feedback systems for post-stroke rehabilitation.
