Vibration thresholds and equal vibration levels at the human fingertip and palm

  title={Vibration thresholds and equal vibration levels at the human fingertip and palm},
  author={H B Oey and Volker Mellert},
This study investigate the perception of vibrations at two different parts of the human hand, the fingertip and the palm. Vibration thresholds (VT) and equalvibration levels (EVL) are measured at these locations from 16 to 315Hz, covering the frequency range of three mechanoreceptors, the Merkel and Meissner receptors and the Pacini corpuscles, in the human hand. The VT, EVL and just-noticeable-differences (JND) in frequency for sinusodial vibrations are measured with an electro-dynamical… CONTINUE READING
