Abstract

In comparison to all types of injury, those to the brain are among the most likely to result in death or permanent disability. A certain percentage of these brain-injured people cannot communicate, recreate, or control their environment due to severe motor impairment. This group of individuals with severe head injury have received little from assistive technology. Brain computer interfaces have opened up a spectrum of assistive technologies, which are particularly appropriate for people with traumatic brain-injury, especially those who suffer from “locked-in” syndrome. This paper discusses using human computer interaction (HCI) concepts to design interfaces for the brain injured to communicate, recreate and control their environment.
