TerraSense is a powered light multisensory substitution belt that can provide the missing feedback as tactile stimulation on the lower back for use in stroke rehabilitation. 

Sensory impairments significantly limit the ability to use the affected lower limb after stroke. This may lead to severe walking impairments. Assistance and rehabilitation using sensory augmentation can be beneficial in many aspects, including in the reduction of the cognitive load of walking. Wearable haptic technologies, including vibration and skin deformation, can provide reliable somatosensory information during the execution of tasks. TerraSense includes three main subsystems: (1) Identification of stages of walking with the help of AI and signals from accelerometers that are integrated in the belt (2) Tactile actuators (tactors) apply skin deformation and vibration on the lower back. (3) Stimulation patterns that will be determined by clinicians to patterns of typical gait impairments.
