Sensitive Touch / Intelligent Prosthetics

Sensitive Touch
Sensitive Touch

‘Sensitive Touch’ is a touch sensitive glove and feedback system for prosthetic arms. It allows its users to ‘feel’ with their artificial arm, ridding of the disabling, practical and emotional, issues caused back lack of sensitivity. The concept was developed for the company ‘Footfalls and Heartbeats’, as an application for their break-through ‘Itelligent Fabric’ technology.
