Towards a Tactile Language for Movement Instructions

In this thesis we present full-body tactile movement instructions as a way to assist in achieving maintaining the correct posture. As different domains of everyday life and sport have specific movements in common we identified basic movement instructions. To provide a basis for tactile pattern design, we defined a structure of a tactile language. On the basis of this structure several full-body tactile patterns were designed.
