Wheelchair that works with expressions under research
July 8, 2016
An institute in Brazil is currently working on the design of a wheelchair that can be used by stroke patients and people with conditions that make hand movements impossible.
The wheelchair will use methods that allow communication between the brain and an external device.
The researchers fitted a regular wheelchair with devices like sensors, a notebook computer and a 3D camera. These allow the user to interact with a computer by using facial expressions or body movements.
The work is in progress and the aim is to make a wheelchair that is affordable.
