a reliable brain-computer communication system enabling patients suffering from severe neuromuscular paralysis to act independently and socialize

I-AMA technology opens up a path of progress where environmental/ physical barriers can be eliminated, enabling disabled people to access (both virtually and physically) distant and remote locations.

i-AMA promises the design and implementation of an integrated brain-computer interface (BCI) for the navigation of a robot car, equipped with a camera, in order for a completely paralyzed locked-in (LIS) patient to be able to ‘move’ (virtually) to remote environments. Robot car control is based solely on brain signals, which are analyzed to translate user’s intention into motion commands, wirelessly transmitted to the robot car. Furthermore, we are evolving and extending this idea by considering the design and implementation of a mind controlled electric wheelchair enabling autonomous navigation.
