NeuroNode: A New Solution for Those Living with Paralysis and Loss of Speech.


Article Introduction (Source):

WHAT IS THE NEURONODE?

NeuroNode is a small, non-invasive, wireless EMG assistive communications device.

The NeuroNode wireless sensor is placed on the skin over the muscle chosen to be the switch. When you attempt to move that muscle, the NeuroNode detects your bioelectrical (EMG) signals, even if there is no visible muscle movement, and uses these signals to allow you to control your computer, tablet, or cellular device.

Compatible with most popular devices and operating systems, the NeuroNode allows users to reconnect to the world and find their voice again.

WHAT CAN YOU DO WITH THE NEURONODE?

  • Communicate with family,friends,caregivers and clinicians
  • Send and receive text and email messages
  • Browse the web,watch videos and movies
  • Listen to music, radio, and podcasts
  • Read the news
  • Use environmental control systems
  • Explore the world using AT and telepresence robots
  • Control external devices

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The NeuroNode uses the body’s EMG signals (the nerve signals sent from the brain to a muscle) as a switch to control a scanning keyboard on a computer, tablet, or mobile device. Most importantly it is:

  • Non-invasive
  • Easy to learn
  • Self–calibrating
  • Completely wireless
  • Supported 24/7/365
