Name of the Technology : Brain Computer Interface
Disability Sector : Multiple Disability
Function : Memory and Cognitive aids
Category of research : Upgradation of existing technology/product
Brief description of the product/ technology:
Most of the neurological disorders mainly affects speech, mobility, etc…The trauma also cause severe impairment and also some people lose their cognitive behavior. So for training the patients in hospital/ home environments, the brain computer interface can be a best solution.
The subjects can be allowed to participate for their betterment by the medical professionals.
The proposed methodology is to give visual input as stimulus to record evoked potential, the patient may be asked to count number of times the images appeared. Whenever the required visual stimulus (picture) occurs the EVP- p300 is prominent. By using a classifier the performance of the subject can be studied. Auditory stimulus can also be used if the subject eye sensitivity is not good. It helps as aid to all age group with disability to get recovered.
The products developed are useful multi tasking as well as for multiple disorders.
