'Phase 3' of the human evaluation of the haptic devices that we have been developing is now complete.

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.
