Brain mapping to help paralysed people to communicate

Professor Damien Coyle has created a futuristic headset that helps paralysed patients communicate with their families using their thoughts.

Using non-invasive wearable neurotechnology to measure and translate brainwaves into control signals, the headset uses advanced algorithms to enable people to interact with technology and communicate without moving.

This has applications in rehabilitation, diagnostics, augmentative and assistive communication devices and entertainment.
