Haptic-action, action research

As we go about the process of figuring out what works haptically and what doesn't, establishing the empirical grounding of HICP/EHIEP, the type of research and how it is presented is, of course, very important. An interesting model for the process of evaluating the efficacy of haptic treatment and devices is that used by Evans, et al., in mechanical engineering. Essentially, they used a "felt sense" scale to explore the "stickiness" of the haptic anchors as researcher/participants in the proces. On a 1-5 Likert scale of "intensely moving" to "touching" to "disembodied," how would you rate that idea and its resultant rubric? And your anchoring of vocabulary and pronunciation "repairs?"
