Multiple sclerosis, Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), ischemic or traumatic injury involves each year more than 3 million patients.
BrainControl is a breakthrough technology device that give disabled people the power to control objects with their minds, allowing them to control a communicator, domotics devices (lights, doors, windows, alarms, temperature, bed position, …), wheelchair.
In our brain, when neurons interact, the chemical reaction emits an electrical impulse that can be measured. We make use of EEG sensor that allows us to map thoughts and use them to control objects, exceeding the limits imposed by the state of the art (eye-tracking and custom device based control).
BrainControl is a framework based on proprietary Brain Computer Interface technologies incorporating adaptive capabilities. Main focus is on assistive applications for people affected by degenerative neuromuscular disease and ischemic or traumatic injury, through the creation of a high-tech device for overcoming physical disability, and to improve communication and environmental control. Application examples are represented by the use of a virtual keyboard to access the Internet, use e-mail, phone, and send SMS. Our system will enable people with no or minimal residual mobility to thought-control their domestic environment — the lighting of lamps, the opening of doors, and the operation of electric wheelchairs.
