Abstract Sensory feedback has been used, by a number of workers, to inform the central nervous system of the present state of an artificial limb. Although both electrical stimulation and electromechanical vibrations have been used, there appears to be no evidence of a direct comparison of the advantages and disadvantages of these methods. Such a comparison is made here. It is shown that the information transmission capabilities of both systems are more or less identical. The electrical system has some advantages in reducing the number of items in a myoelectric control system with feedback, but the mechanical vibration system has the advantage of a universal psychological acceptance. Crosstalk prohibits the use of two electrical feedback, channels and it is recommended that, where two channels are required, one should be electrical and the other a mechanical vibration.
