Abstract

Recent literature suggests that inducing proprioceptive movement illusions with predefined movement trajectories via tendon vibration requires use of multiple vibrators and precisely controlled frequency profiles. In this study, we report the design, modeling and control of a compact, low-cost tendon vibrator and illustrate its capability of accurately following time-varying frequency profiles. During the demonstration, participants will test the vibrator to experience illusory elbow flexion.
