BrIndiSys - Brain-computer interface devices to support individual autonomy in locked-in individuals - is a 3-years long research project, funded by the Italian Agency for Research on Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ARiSLA).
The project is aimed at evaluating the benefit of a communication device (based on the Brain-Computer Interface technology) in support of individual autonomy of persons with ALS.The project is run by a multidisciplinary consortium, that is developing new dedicated hardware and new algorithms to implement a BCI device, and will carry out a clinical experimentation to evaluate the impact on the users' quality of life.
