The characteristics of vibrotactile stimulation and an experimental device for the transmission of rhythm information contained in music and similar sounds by means of vibrotactile stimulation are described. The actuator and input/output behavior of the device are examined. Measurement of the intensity discrimination threshold and beat frequency perception threshold is discussed. Application to music education in schools for the deaf is described, and results of a clinical test are reported.<>
