Project Topic TouchBack envisions to bridge the control loop between prosthetic hands and its users, who only rely on visual clues to drive their prosthetic hands. Hereto, we aim to develop a disruptive glove with flexible pressure and temperature sensors, combined with a novel approach to feedback the information from the gripped objects to the end-user seamlessly. TouchBack will take a user-centric R&D approach to overcome the technical challenges and to maximize the functionality of the resulting product.
