New high-tech glove will make the prostheses more sensitive Source:

a New glove — one of the most affordable ways to restore human touch sensitivity. At least partially

For people Today with disabilities scientists and engineers have developed a huge number of various gadgets. There are among them . However, these prostheses are quite functional and can perform many different actions. But an important disadvantage of almost all of such devices — they can't return to human sensitivity. However, a step a bone, this makes the new high-tech glove. Moreover, it can be combined with the existing dentures, which greatly reduces the production of and making the gadget more affordable.

How it works the gauntlet for the return of sensitivity?

Responsible For the development of the joint team of engineers from Purdue University, the University of Georgia and the University of Texas. New glove with a mind can say, is no different from conventional products of this kind. It easily can be worn on almost any existing prosthetic arms to give them the opportunity . The glove is designed to improve the user's ability to interact with other objects.

In innovative a glove built a number of elastic sensors and flexible sensors that can measure pressure, temperature and hydration (i.e. hydration) everything contacts the material. We should not think that the glove will allow you to experience it all directly. It would be too expensive and similar technologies are not allowed to make the device available. Although about these developments, we write. To not to miss anything — subscribe to our .

We used your approach on how to equip any, including existing market, dentures. Material and sensors used in the manufacture of gloves, allow it to find use with prostheses of different shapes and sizes — said the associate Professor at Purdue University and lead author Chi-hwan Lee. Glove on the one hand provides the possibility for the user to understand the properties of surrounding objects, and on the other makes the prosthesis more realistic.

As for how the glove allows the user to know about the properties of an object, it's all quite simple: features are transmitted in the connected smart watch. These watches treat all information received in real-time. This approach the developers believe gloves. In addition, the glove is equipped with the ability to transmit the characteristics of objects to a separate device for processing and analysis.

Schematic device new gloves

Also, by shaking the gloves with the watch you can get device information like battery charge and the condition of the sensors. Similar functionality, though not returns the sensitivity in the full sense of the word, allows a person to understand the properties of objects. For example, how a particular object is fragile or hot, by manipulating, for example, a paper Cup of tea, you immediately will understand, how hot is tea and what force to exert in order to correctly compress the Cup in his hand.

It Should also be noted that in the future the developers plan to equip the glove with tactile feedback and vibration motors for a more accurate and complete transmission of sensations from touching a variety of subjects. There is the possibility of applying technologies used in the manufacture of gloves, when it is created . For example, the endowment of sensitivity not only synthetic brushes, but the entire hand as a whole. Learn more about smart device gloves, you can learn with the help of video available below.
