Abstract

We developed an untethered robotic system that provides walking-related sensory feedback remapped non-invasively to the wearerâ\euro™s back. Using the so-called FeetBack system, we investigated how accurately healthy individuals can monitor remapped, tactile locomotor feedback (motor awareness) and how this affects their walking characteristics (adaptation).
