INTRODUCTION Recent evidence indicates that vibrotactile displays can potentially reduce the risk of sensory and cognitive overload. Before these displays can be introduced in super agile aircraft, it must be ascertained that vibratory stimuli can be sensed and interpreted by pilots subjected to high G loads. METHODS Each of 9 pilots intercepted 32(More)
A spatial electrocutaneous display for sensory substitution is being designed. The display will be used to feed back sensory signals from transfemoral prostheses to amputees. The aim is to improve their walking performance. Two experiments have been performed to optimise the display parameters for dynamic, cyclic signals, which are common during walking.(More)
We examined to what extent we can distinguish between 'real-life' stressed and relaxed participants on the basis of heart rate (HR), heart rate variability (HRV) and skin conductance level (SCL) as measured during rest. Physiological and subjective measures were compared between individuals that were to undergo eye laser surgery and a control group. We(More)
Human living skin generates an increase in the skin potential when compressed. This was measured on eight subjects with a matrix of nine Ag/AgCl electrodes. The potential increased with the pressure until it reached a maximum. When the pressure was increased stepwise, the response showed an overshoot at each step. Human cadaver skin did not show these(More)
