CE CLASS I MEDICAL DEVICE
BrainControl BCI AAC is a Brain Computer Interface and uses thoughts related to movements, such as up, down, left, right. These thoughts create unique patterns of electrical activity in our brain that can be identified. The general pattern of electrical activity is the same from person to person, with small differences that can be aligned with a calibration of the system. The aim of this module is to overcome severe physical and communicative disabilities due to neuromuscular disease such as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), ischemic and traumatic injuries, muscular dystrophies of various kinds, motor and communication disabilities. The device is aimed, first of all, at patients who have an intact cognitive ability but who suffer from diseases that completely or partially paralyze the person.
It overcomes functionalities of devices on the market and fills a technological void for most locked-in patients, that cannot use eye-tracking systems, giving them the opportunity to interact and communicate with their family.
