Stimulation Actuator for Walking Support: Two-Point Threshold on Planta Pedis [PDF]

Hiroyuki Harada and Yutaka Tanaka

(Received July 31, 2014; Accepted March 23, 2015)

Keywords: piezoelectric motor, vibration motor, threshold, human vibration, walking support

The somatic sensation that results from applying a stimulus to the planta pedis is important to maintaining balance and walking around. In this study, we focus on the difference limens of the planta pedis to develop a new device for walking support. Experimental devices for mechanical stimulation by vibration are developed to investigate the two-point threshold level on the planta pedis. Our results clarify that the difference limens depends on the region of the planta pedis.
