Researchers at an Australian university are developing a novel brain computer interface. The brain signals obtained can be used to control, for example, a robotic limb device, with greater degrees of freedom than are currently available from surface electrodes and without the surgical risks associated with cranial surgery.
The research team is interested in hearing from people with spinal cord injury about how they would use such a device. If you could think to control something, anything, what would you like to control? If you could have a robotic limb controlled by thought, what are some common tasks you would use it for?
Suggestions and desires from many people living with a spinal cord injuries are helping to design the system to best suit those who will benefit most! If you have a moment, please click here to fill out a short anonymous online survey.
