Neural-Directed Wheelchair

The InvenTeam devised an alternative method for quadriplegics and amputees to move. Using an electrode cap to translate EEG M-rhythm or neurosignals from the user’s brain to a microprocessor in the wheelchair, the user can move by just thinking about it; no physical movement is required. InvenTeam teacher Paul Cammer donned the electrode cap as the test subject during wheelchair demos at the MIT finale event. The InvenTeam received a 2009 Continuation Grant.
