Doctoral Seminar on "Wearable Vibrotactile Biofeedback for Human Postural Control" by Katrin Schulleri, Human-centered Assistive Robotics Group, TUM.
Abstract: Several studies have demonstrated the beneficial effects of real-time biofeedback for improving postural control.
However, it remains unclear how different types of stimulus presentations affect not only trunk tilt, but also Center of Pressure (CoP) displacements, and whether an instruction on how to move contributes to a better understanding of vibrotactile feedback. Moreover, the application for daily activities, which also include postural transitions, is still limited. One crucial aspect is the time point of providing feedback, and thus its reliability. This might depend on the sensor system used, but also on how the threshold is defined.
In this doctoral seminar, I will present our studies tackling these problems.
The seminar takes place on October 25, at 11h online, if you are interested to join, please a look at our website.
