Abstract

We are developing a multi-function haptic device that displays pressure, vibration, shear force, and temperature to the skin of upper extremity amputees, especially those who have undergone targeted nerve reinnervation (TRI) surgery. This paper presents the design of the thermal display portion of this device. Through psychophysical temperature discrimination tests, the unique thermal response characteristics of intact hands and TRI-chests are explored.
