On January 2012 the technical partners delivered the Prototype I of the Brindisys system which provides applications for face to face communication and environmental control.
The system is accessible both by classical input devices such as mouse, touch screen, joystick etc and with a simple Brain Computer Interface.



On February 2012 the first round of experimentation with end users started in order to collect feedback about the system features.





On October 2012 the experimentation is still going on and it is involving end users, caregivers and stakeholders, while technical partners are working on the final prototype of the Brindisys system. In fact they are developing new features and are improving the existing ones relying on the feedback about the Prototype I that was provided by users who attended the experimentation.

On January 2013 the technical partners delivered the final Prototype for final experimentation round at patients' homes. Final experimentation ended on May 2013.
