Wearable elastomeric device for detecting finger movements and returning tactile feedback

This Lecture will present wearable electromechanical devices able to detect positions and movements of the hand fingers and return non-vibratory tactile feedback by means of elastomeric ‘smart’ materials.
They are currently being studied as an alternative to traditional technologies to obtain simpler, more easily portable and cheaper systems.
The Lecture will describe the state of the art and the most recent innovations in the use of these materials, showing both technological aspects and some areas of possible application currently under study, spanning from entertainment to cognitive-motor rehabilitation programmes in virtual reality.
