I recently spoke to a customer of mine who's son in law had a stroke six months ago and is now paralysed
and suffering locked in syndrome.
His only way of communicating is answering yes no questions using JUST up and down movement of his eyes!
A 'special team' have been in to assess him and said that they cannot develop anything for him as his eye cannot go left and right so he hasn't been communicate other than a few sentences made up using alphabet boards which obviously take a very long time and as a result he must be suffering!
Please help me construct a method of using perhaps eeg or Electrooculography? To simply, for now, perhaps make an LCD display sentences using perhaps up movement to increase letter and down for next letter, I have an understanding of arduinos and my level is such that I make circuit using bare ATmega328P etc so I am not a total beginner.
Many many thanks, lets change this guys life! I will post videos of our results on YouTube, lets give him the best Christmas present ever!
He is only 39 and has been like this for six months and has no chance or recovery!
Please hit me with ideas and I will get building!
