Chronic Use of a Sensitized Bionic Hand Does Not Remap the Sense of Touch
Journal article, 2020

Electrical stimulation of tactile nerve fibers can be used to restore touch through a bionic hand. Ortiz-Catalan et al. show that a mismatch between the location of the sensor on the bionic hand and the tactile experience is not resolved after long-term prosthesis use.
