Haptic feedback R&D hardware
The ScienceSuit is a set of hardware components that let researchers and product developers harness the full potential of haptic feedback technology quickly and cost-efficiently. It allows them to integrate haptic technology into an application or product of their choice, saving valuable development time.
What current ScienceSuit users are saying
We are using the ScienceSuit to test the added value of integrating haptic feedback stimulation in exoskeletons worn by subjects with spinal cord injuries.
The ScienceSuit is very user-friendly, and thanks to the clear documentation, easy to customise to our needs and integrate with other components.
Dr Edwin van Asseldonk, University of Twente
We are exploring the potential of smart wearables for visually impaired people and use the ScienceSuit in our research to convey facial expressions through tactile feedback.
We’ve found the hardware and software to be very effective and flexible for our use.
Prof. dr. Richard J.A. van Wezel, Radboud University
We developed a soft exoskeleton to assist people with mobility impairments and used the ScienceSuit to provide haptic balance feedback to the exoskeleton users.
What we like about the ScienceSuit is that it is very quick to get started, thanks to the provided code examples, documentation and customer service.
