Application of the Hanger Reflex to walking navigation was investigated. The Hanger Reflex is a phenomenon that produces an illusory force and involuntary rotation of the body parts by skin deformation. It was first applied at the head by using a wire hanger, but is now known to work on many body parts such as the waist, wrist, and ankle. In the experiment combining Hanger Reflex devices at the head, waist, and ankle, we confirmed that the waist-type Hanger Reflex is the most effective, and that combined Hanger Reflex imparted limited influence on the results.
