  • Training to use a commercial brain-computer interface as access technology: a case study

    • Disability and Rehabilitation: Assistive Technology (Informa Healthcare)
    • October 1, 2014

    This case study describes how an individual with spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy was trained over a period of four weeks to use a commercial electroencephalography (EEG)-based brain-computer interface (BCI). Method: The participant spent three sessions exploring the system, and seven sessions playing a game focused on EEG feedback training of left and right arm motor imagery and a customised, training game paradigm was employed. Results: The participant showed improvement in the production of two distinct EEG patterns. The participant’s performance was influenced by motivation, fatigue and concentration. Six weeks post-training the participant could still control the BCI and used this to type a sentence using an augmentative and alternative communication application on a wirelessly linked device. Conclusions: The results from this case study highlight the importance of creating a dynamic, relevant and engaging training environment for BCIs.

    Implications for Rehabilitation
    * Customising a training paradigm to suit the users’ interests can influence adherence to assistive technology training.
    * Mood, fatigue, physical illness and motivation influence the usability of a brain-computer interface.
    * Commercial brain-computer interfaces, which require little set up time, may be used as access technology for individuals with severe disabilities
