  • Aims - Brindisys
    assistive system aimed at preserving the communication capabilities of a person who progressively loses his muscular force coping with his her residual abilities Even in absence of muscular functions the proposed system would still allow the user some communication capabilities by relaying on non invasive Brain Computer Interfaces BCIs In fact by identifying the modulation of brain activity voluntarily induced by the user detected by processing his electroencephalogram EEG BCI

    gateway device that will accept input from the BCI as well as by other input devices such as buttons joysticks touchpads head trackers etc Any input will be processed and relayed to a mainstream communication or ambient control system This system will be designed and validated with the help of persons with ALS which will be interviewed in the design phase to provide user requirements These users will also test

    and multiple available output devices In fact depending on personal preferences and on the level of motor abilities the user may choose or need to utilize a specific input device buttons touchpad switches BCI etc the Gateway would function as a common interface through which the user can control several output devices e g a communication aid a PC a TV set a domotic controller etc This approach has several advantages i it provides a better match to the user s preferences and ii it adapts to the gradual loss of motor functions due to the progress of ALS iii it allows a user to familiarize in advance with a new input device that he may need to master in the future when loss of motor skills prevents him to keep on using his current input device The Gateway should abstract common aspects of each input device it is designed for and should have an internal representation of all possible commands that the output devices might accept Moreover it should provide the user with a visual interface which intuitively represents the set of available commands or communication options In order to be effective the Gateway must successfully solve the following tradeoffs input performance vs universal accessibility a smart abstraction of input modalities should avoid flattening functionalities and ease of use toward the least complex output richness vs universal control a smart abstraction of output devices should avoid implementing the subset of common commands alone control intuitiveness vs portability a smart user interface should allow selecting the desired option in a minimum number of steps even on a small display Dedicated hardware As mentioned in the BCI algorithms section the BCI device will be integrated in an embedded and portable electronic device EPED in order to acquire and process the EEG

  • Testing with the users - Brindisys
    the involvement of other districts such as upper limbs to write or operate communicators provided that at least another communication channel is preserved User needs In the design period of the prototype approximately 50 users will be involved for specific requirement survey an ad hoc interview will be designed by psychologist and clinicians together with the technical partners in order to explore specific needs that will be subsequently developed in the prototype implementation Areas of interest will be use of mainstream communication aids control of electrical devices at home basic communication skills in a portable form to be used outside their home and with people other than their caregivers Experimental setup The 1st round experimentation FSL will include about 10 selected users to test the first prototype in a designed environment which is totally under domotic control allowing a thorough assessment of system functionalities showcase location nearby the laboratory will allow full technical support Inclusion exclusion criteria will be based on degree of motor impairment mobility motivation familial support Main aim is to assess comfort of use of system s functionalities In the 2nd round experimentation about 10 users will be selected to test the final prototype at their home
