Reseach Featured in 'New Boundaries' Magazine

Dec 2011 Issue of New Boundaries
Our research on the use of tactile devices in stroke rehabilitation, has been featured in the latest issue of the University's biannual research magazine: 'New Boundaries'. The magazine gives a flavour of the University's broad range of research, which crosses the boundaries separating the traditional disciplines.

The 4-page article from this issue, including an interview with myself, Cheryl Metcalf and Sara Demain, can be downloaded by following this link. An excerpt from this article is shown below:

Southampton researchers are also developing novel devices that help stroke patients regain the sense of touch in their arms and hands. Dr Geoff Merrett, who is leading the project, says: "The sensory aspect of stroke rehabilitation hasn't had much attention so far, but it is vital. It's all very well being able to move your hand to pick up an object, but when you can't feel that object, you don't know whether it's slipping out of your hand or whether it's hot or cold. The devices we're designing will reinforce those perceptions."
