Principal Investigator:   Ferdinando Mussa-Ivaldi, PhD  

Co - Investigator:  Camilla Pierella, PhD
 

Synopsis/Goals of the Project

  • To develop a software interface for neuromotor rehabilitation mapping the users’ residual upper body mobility into the 2D space control signal that guides the movement of a cursor on a screen.

  • To test the aforementioned system in personalized rehabilitation treatments provided by portable and low-cost technologies in clinic and home environments.

  • To use the BMI not only with a rehabilitative goal but also to facilitate the use of an assistive device, in particular to control a powered wheelchair.
