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 userís 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.
