Temporal myoelectric interface for electric wheelchairs
We designed an interface which, through electrodes attached around the temples, picks up myoelectric signals from the temporal muscle and uses them to operate a variety of equipment without the involvement of the wearer's arms or legs.
The temporal muscle is a masticatory muscle which is easy to move and recovers quickly from fatigue.
Operation is done by biting the left or right back teeth to acquire 2 channels of on-and-off signals.
We are presently introducing an interface used to operate wheelchairs.
