Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) The authors propose a concept referred to as VLTC (virtual light touch contact) which is designed to
mitigate postural sway in the user. The study reported here involved the use of a prototype incorporating tactile
stimulation and acceleration sensor technology. Experiments performed with healthy young subjects to verify the
system’s applicability indicated a lower acceleration root mean square with VLTC than in non-assisted ambulation.
