In this study, we hypothesized that haptic feedback would enhance grip force control of sEMG-controlled prosthetic hands for Targeted Reinnervation amputees. A new miniature haptic device..a tactor..that can deliver touch, pressure, shear, and temperature sensation, allows modality-matching haptic feedback. Targeted Reinnervation (TR) surgery that creates sensory regions on the patients skin that refer to the surface of the missing limb allows somatotopic-matching haptic feedback. This paper evaluates the hypothesis via an sEMG-controlled virtual prosthetic arm operated by TR amputees under diverse haptic feedback conditions. The results indicate that the grip force control is significantly enhanced via the haptic feedback. However, the simultaneous display of two haptic channels (pressure and shear) does not enhance, but instead degrades, grip force control.
