They do not provide tactile or kinesthetic sensation, so the user can only rely on vision while using the prosthesis.
The results may have important practical implications for motor-disabled individuals who retain some kinesthetic sensation. Some traumatic injuries result in severe motor deficits but leave a degree of sensation intact.
Thus, dance training enhances the imagery of kinesthetic sensation and influences the choice of spatial direction, facilitating the body-space interaction.
Abstract: An haptic interface allows the interaction among a human operator and a virtual environment defined in a computer, the haptic interaction with a virtual object establishes a kinesthetic sensation to the user.
The main effect for gender revealed that males preferred more physical/kinesthetic movement (M = 22.79) in their learning experiences than did females (M = 20.42), The interaction effect for gender and at-risk F(1,693) = 6.39, p [is less than] .05) revealed that both male (M = 22.63) and female (M = 22.05) at-risk students preferred significantly more kinesthetic sensation and physical movement in their learning than did male (M = 20.22) and female (M = 20.40) peers, but were not significantly different from each other.
For the purposes of this discussion, it is important to note that we do not have any kinesthetic sensation of the diaphragm contracting, or of the air moving in and out the lungs.

Basically, adopting an external focus of attention during MI might promote associations between movements and their exteroceptive effects, whereas using an internal focus would support the link between movement and both tactile and kinesthetic sensations. In other words, providing specific imagery instructions on the effects of the movement might result in using an external visual imagery perspective, whereas prioritizing tactile and kinesthetic sensations would mean combining internal visual imagery perspective and kinesthetic imagery.
Curiously, kinesthetic sensations (the sense of motion and orientation) often fell over me when I observed the videotapes, and some guided me through the analysis.
The camera lens may be thought of as an "eye," but without a natural link to the kinesthetic sensations of a living body it has little to do with the experience we know as human.
