SenseBack was born out of an EPSRC sandpit on Adaptive Assistive Rehabilitative Technologies in September 2014. This website has been designed to best reflect the public profile of this project.

The goal of this project is to develop technologies that will enable the next generation of assistive devices to provide truly natural control through enhanced sensory feedback. Our long-term vision is for artificial arms that provide the user with a sense of feedback that recreates the natural feedback associated with a real arm. To enable this level of feedback, we must meet two clear objectives: to generate artificial signals that mimic those of the natural arm and hand, and to provide a means of delivering those signals to the nervous system of a prosthesis user.

We are keen to receive your feedback on this website:

  • Have you encountered any bugs or issues with this website?
  • Is there anything we can do to further improve it?
