A biomechanical model of pacinian corpuscle & skin
Published in
2013
Abstract
This paper describes a wide band biomechanical model of Pacinian Corpuscle (PC) embedded in skin and its response against the trapezoidal and sinusoidal stimuli in order to study human vibrotactile (VT) sensitivity near the VT Sensitivity Threshold (VTST) covering few 10s of Hz to few kHz. The overall model includes mechanical signal conditioning in both skin layers and PC lamellae. The developed model describes the mechanical signal processing of the PC lamellar structure in a recursive transfer function and its response is validated against the data from literature. © 2013 IEEE.
