A New Glove Increases Touch Sensation
Researchers at Georgia Tech have completed a study using a glove-type device called "Mobile Music Touch". Half of the people with spinal cord injuries in the study wore the device to learn how to play piano. Vibrations in the glove sent through a wireless connection to a person's fingers, indicated it was time to move the finger to play the note. The participants were also asked to wear the device for two hours a day on top of their piano practice time. The other half of the participants in the study only received piano lessons.
The end result was positive for increased feeling and movement in the hands of those particpants who wore the glove.
