Abstract: This work is motivated by the idea that new modes of haptic interaction are needed to expand the range of activities and applications for wearable electronic devices. In applications ranging from motion training and physical rehabilitation to teleoperation of a remote system, haptic feedback can provide valuable information about forces and motions, particularly when vision and audition are otherwise occupied. An under appreciated component of haptic sensation, particularly for applications involving portable devices, is skin stretch. Skin stretch is a known part of the normal physiological apparatus for proprioception, contributing to our sense of motion and location of our limbs. The motions and velocities necessary to impart skin stretch can be low, allowing for the design of compact, low-power, wearable devices. With this in mind, I have focused on skin stretch for the display of proprioceptive information associated, for example, with the motions of a person’s limbs.
