A comparison of vibrotactile thresholds on the finger obtained with different equipment

A comparison of vibrotactile thresholds on the finger obtained with different equipment

Vibrotactile thresholds on the finger have been compared using two alternative systems. One system prescribed the push force, the contact force, and the surround, while this was not defined for the other system. The experiment was performed with nine male subjects attending on three different days. It was found that the two systems yielded vibrotactile thresholds which were significantly different. The dependence of vibrotactile thresholds on the frequency of vibration, the area of contact with vibration, the conditions surrounding the contact area, the contact force, the push force, the finger temperature, and the distortion of waveform must be considered when quantifying vibrotactile thresholds.

Abstract

Vibrotactile thresholds on the finger have been compared using two alternative systems. One system prescribed the push force, the contact force, and the surround, while this was not defined for the other system. The experiment was performed with nine male subjects attending on three different days. It was found that the two systems yielded vibrotactile thresholds which were significantly different. The dependence of vibrotactile thresholds on the frequency of vibration, the area of contact with vibration, the conditions surrounding the contact area, the contact force, the push force, the finger temperature, and the distortion of waveform must be considered when quantifying vibrotactile thresholds.
