Vibrotactile Stimulation Promotes Embodiment of an Alien Hand in Amputees With Phantom Sensations 556 235 Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering (TNSRE)

Abstract Tactile feedback is essential to intuitive control and to promote the sense of self-attribution of a prosthetic limb. Recent findings showed that amputees can be tricked to experience this embodiment, when synchronous…
