Sensory feedback from the body is key to enabling fine motor control, natural (low cognitive load) movement and non-visual awareness of the position of your body. Individuals with prosthetic limbs lack this proprioceptive and tactile feedback and as such struggle to learn to control their artificial limbs and are unlikely to achieve high levels of coordination.
My research investigates neural stimulation as a method of providing artificial feedback from a prosthetic limb. Our approach makes use of a peripheral neural implant for stimulation and will focus on providing the user with intuitively understood information. As such the research will look at creating neural signals that mimic those naturally found in the body.
