Researchers develop EEG-based, non-invasive robotic arm that converts thoughts into action  

EEG-Based Robotic Cap
A team of researchers from the University of Minnesota have achieved a breakthrough success in the field of prosthesis by developing a non-invasive technology that doesn’t require any implant to transmit brain-signals.  The researchers have developed EEG-based robotic arm that a subject can control through thoughts. As per a study published in Scientific Reports, an electroencephalography (EEG) based brain-computer interface can record even weak electrical singles in the brain of the subject.  The set-up includes a specialized EEG cap that houses 64 electrodes.  The cap processes the signals to transmit it to the robotic arm to grasp or move a subject to specific direction.

Brain-controlled robotic hand allows quadriplegia patients to perform everyday tasks

Mind Controlled Robotic
Researchers have achieved breakthrough in development of a non-invasive, brain-controlled robotic hand that can regain ability to perform daily tasks for quadriplegia patients. The entire set-up is like an exoskeleton consisting of a robotic hand and a cap-like headgear that read brain signals and eye movement of the wearer. The best part is that it doesn’t require surgical implantation or any sort of wet gel to work. The exoskeleton was successfully tested in Spain on various subjects. Read More…
