Abstract

A BMI using Electroencephalography (EEG) input, known as the Emotiv EPOC™ was tested with an external robotic arm to determine if it was suitable for control of peripherals. Within 2 weeks of training, subjects maintained or improved axial control of the robot arm, and reduced their overall performance time. Although the EPOC™ does require further testing and development, its adaptability to multiple software programs, users and peripherals allows it to serve both Virtual Rehabilitation and device control in the immediate future.
