From hidden lives of coma patients and how thoughts drive stroke rehabilitation

Imagine you can think, hear and feel, but not see or move. You are unable to talk. This nightmare scenario of not being able to move your own body is a reality for tens of coma and stroke patients worldwide. This is why mindBEAGLE has been developed to provide coma patients with the chance to communicate with their family and doctors again. At the same time recoveriX has been created to use only thoughts and imagination to learn new ways of moving affected arms and feet again. Both systems are based on Brain-Computer Interfaces that measure brainwaves in real-time and process immediately to have real-time feedback. Learn more about recoveriX and mindBEAGLE and communicate only by your thoughts!
