Tactile Devices Trialed on Stroke Patients19th November 2010
'Phase 3' of the human evaluation of the haptic devices that we have been developing is now complete.
Sarah Cunningham evaluating the tactile devices on a participant with stroke.
The human evaluation section of this project had four phases; phases 1, 2 and 4 testing the devices on normal subjects, with phase 3 testing on partipicants with stroke.
The information and feedback that we have received from these trials has been invaluable in influencing the design of the devices, and has uncovered a wealth of information on the sensory perception of people following stroke.
