Vibrotactile thresholds are sensory thresholds in tactual perception concerned with the detection of vibration and touch in various forms. The thresholds studied include


  • Mimimum level of vibration that can be detected.
  • Minimum change between compared stimuli that is detectable.
  • Minimum change in one stimuli that is noticeable.
