2013) Vibrotracker: a vibrotactile
sensor tracking objects.
It is majorly fuelled by growing demand for tactile haptics technology in wearable electronics/smart watches/fitness trackers, capability of tactile haptics technology to offer personalized user experience, consistent R&D and advanced tactile haptics technologies (such as vibrotactile
, shape/texture, and force tactile technologies) are projected to drive the market.
On examining humans affective responses to superimposed sinusoidal signals, the signals can be perceived through sound, in case of electronically synthesized musical notes, or through vibro-tactile stimulation, in case of vibrations produced by vibrotactile

6 years; all had B1-level visual impairment) in visually impaired tennis, a motion-sensing exercise game that used vibrotactile
and audio cues.
So far, suggestions have included augmenting tactile feedback available on the handles of walking aids and in vibrotactile
straps attached to the lower leg (for patients with diabetic neuropathy--reduced sensation in their feet), devices to alert visually impaired walkers of trip hazards, and visual cues to help people with Parkinson's walk more safely.
Sensory feedback was provided via a vibratory stimulus using vibrotactile

and Auditory Cues on Visual Spatial Attention," Ergonomics 49(7):724-738, 2006.
16] If a child does not appear to condition under headphones at loud intensities, vibrotactile
conditioning with a bone oscillator should be attempted to ascertain whether this lack of response is a potential hearing loss or a result of developmental delay.
He explains, "Due to the presence of multiple formants, there may in fact be several such locations where vibrotactile
sensation is maximized.
is the widely used tactile feedback for mobile devices but advances in actuators and controls have created other tactile feedbacks like pulses and vibrations.
Therapeutic approaches targeting the vestibular system such as modified Cawthorne and Cooksey training or neuro feedback methods with vibrotactile
feedback signals  could be considered in PD patients with vestibular dysbalance.
