Question: Are there are any materials about how vibration sense helps in RSI?
Answer: As a result of the talk given by Dr Bruce Lynn at the RSIA AGM (see RSI-UK web site for more details of this), I have been trawling the internet looking for other papers on vibration sense research and came up with the following:
