Recent advances in electroencephalography (EEG) and electromyography (EMG) enable communication for people with severe disabilities. In this paper we present a system that enables the use of regular computers using an off-the-shelf EEG/EMG headset, providing a pointing device and virtual keyboard that can be used to operate any Windows based system, minimizing the user effort required for interacting with a personal computer. Effectiveness of the proposed system is evaluated by a usability… Expand

A real-time assistive computer interface for users with motor disabilities
TLDR
The result is an affordable DSP-based system that, when combined with an on-screen keyboard, enables the user to fully operate a computer without using any extremities. Expand
Clinical application of an EEG-based brain–computer interface: a case study in a patient with severe motor impairment
TLDR
The proposed BCI training procedure, based on electroencephalogram (EEG) biofeedback and concomitant adaptation of feature extraction and classification, may improve actual levels of communication ability in locked-in patients. Expand
Brain–computer interfaces for communication and control
TLDR
With adequate recognition and effective engagement of all issues, BCI systems could eventually provide an important new communication and control option for those with motor disabilities and might also give those without disabilities a supplementary control channel or a control channel useful in special circumstances.

Using a cyberlink mental interface for relaxation and controlling a robot
TLDR
It was discovered during formal interviews and during experiments that quadriplegic persons wished to use the Cyberlink not only for communication and recreation but to also power a robotic arm much as one uses a prosthetic arm. Expand
EMG contamination of EEG: spectral and topographical characteristics
TLDR
Frontalis or temporalis muscle EMG recorded from the scalp has spectral and topographical features that vary substantially across individuals, and EMG spectra often have peaks in the beta frequency range that resemble EEG beta peaks. Expand
Electroencephalogram in “locked-in” syndrome
Twenty-three EEG studies in eight patients with "locked-in" syndrome were reviewed. The EEG was either normal or minimally slow in all except one patient. All showed reactivity to various stimuli.Expand
COMPUTER VISION INTERACTION FOR PEOPLE WITH SEVERE MOVEMENT RESTRICTIONS
TLDR
The starting point of research in applying human- computer interaction (HCI) techniques to help people with cerebral palsy to use computers via vision-based interaction is presented. Expand
Hands-free vision-based interface for computer accessibility
TLDR
A vision-based user interface designed to achieve computer accessibility for disabled users with motor impairments is presented, which automatically finds the user's face and tracks it through time to recognize gestures within the face region in real time. Expand
Sniffing enables communication and environmental control for the severely disabled
TLDR
It is concluded that redirection of sniff motor programs toward alternative functions allows sniffing to provide a control interface that is fast, accurate, robust, and highly conserved following severe injury. Expand
