    This preliminary study investigated behaviorally the performance of a sample of young twins in a set of classical visuomotor tasks. The assessment was carried out using a small haptic interface used to produce force and record the hand trajectory during the execution of tasks requiring rapid and precise movements. The aim of the study was to evaluate the sensorimotor development across a wide age-... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a haptic simulator for prostate brachytherapy. Both needle insertion and the manipulation of the transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) probe are controlled via haptic devices. These are used to render tissue interaction forces computed using a deformable tissue model based on the finite element method (FEM). Needle flexibility and lateral needle bevel forces are also simulated. The TRU... View full abstract»

    Catheter devices allow physicians to access the inside of the human body easily and painlessly through natural orifices and vessels. Although catheters allow for the delivery of fluids and drugs, the deployment of devices, and the acquisition of the measurements, they do not allow clinicians to assess the physical properties of tissue inside the body due to the tissue motion and transmission limit...

  • Informing haptic feedback design for gait retraining

    Gait retraining, a promising treatment for knee osteoarthritis, requires the modification of three separate joint motions. In this paper we present the results of three studies to inform the design of a wearable haptic feedback system for this application. The first study motivates our choice of feedback modality for each of the motions. The latter two studies explore how to present haptic feedbac... View full abstract»

  • On the 1/f noise and non-integer harmonic decay of the interaction of a finger sliding on flat and sinusoidal surfaces

    Publication Year: 2011, Page(s):25 - 30

    Fluctuations of the frictional force arising from the stroke of a finger against flat and sinusoidal surfaces are studied. A custom-made high-resolution friction force sensor, able to resolve milli-newton forces, was used to record those fluctuations as well as the net, low-frequency components of the interaction force. Measurements show that the fluctuations of the sliding force are highly non-st... View full abstract»

  • Design of a SMA actuated 2-DoF tactile device for displaying tangential skin displacement

    Tangential skin displacement at the fingertip is an effective means of communicating direction or displaying static friction in haptic application. A tactile device capable of stretching the skin of the fingerpad can be mounted directly on the fingertip or embedded in haptic interfaces and hand-held devices. In both cases low weight and small dimensions are important requirements. We have develope... View full abstract»

  • TAXEL: Initial progress toward self-morphing visio-haptic interface

    This paper proposes a new interactive interface TAXEL, which aims at developing a reconfigurable self-morphing visio-haptic interface. We first present the overall architecture and concept of a self-morphing visuo-haptic interface. Key hardware components are developed and tested, including three tactile actuators using a piezoelectric active linear actuator, a passive MR fluid actuator, and a thi... View full abstract»

  • Remote measurement of surface compliance distribution using ultrasound radiation pressure

    In this paper, we propose a remote measurement system of surface compliance distributions for haptic broadcasting. Our system is composed of an ultrasound phased array generating acoustic radiation pressure on the remote object surface and a laser displacement sensor. The compliance is evaluated by the ratio of the surface displacement to the applied force. We set up a system to examine the feasib... View full abstract»

    The perception of tactile motion is essential for our daily interaction with objects. Tactile motion perception has been studied by using stimuli featuring real or apparent motion. Research on tactile apparent motion has conventionally manipulated the perceived direction of the motion using 2 non-repeating or more than 2 repeating stimuli. Here, we report the modulation of perceived motion directi... View full abstract»

  • Optimizing populations of SAI tactile mechanoreceptors to enable activities of daily living

    At present, the dense network of peripheral afferents between finger and brain and the large size of engineered sensors preclude the recreation of biologically observed afferent populations. This work uses a validated computational model of cutaneous skin and tactile afferents to evaluate sparse populations in performing tasks required in activities of daily living. Using a model (3D finite elemen... View full abstract»
