Our interdisciplinary research on haptic devices for tactile interaction was showcased at this year's SoNG 'Outreach' event'. The Outreach event was held to showcase research to both the University and selected school teachers, charities, patient groups and industrialists. At the event, we demonstrated some of the wearable tactile devices that we have produced through the project, and reported on the findings of their evaluation on human participants.

The Southampton Neuroscience Group (SoNG) is a network of more than 100 academics, clinicians, and practitioners. SoNG activities improve opportunities for interdisciplinary research, dialogue with stakeholders and links with the local community through public engagement and outreach.

'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 str...
