A P300 Brain Computer Interface Keyboard to Control Assistive Technology For Use by People With Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
A P300 Brain Computer Interface Keyboard to Control Assistive Technology For Use by People With Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

Patients with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) will use a P300 based brain computer interface (BCI) keyboard to type in assistive technology devices. The results of this study will be compared with a previous study of a P300 BCI keyboard used by healthy volunteers.

Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Supportive Care
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
Device: P300 Brain Computer Interface Keyboard
Subjects will wear an EEG cap for 1-4 hours (1-2 hours typical) per session and use the brain-computer interface to operate assistive technology. Subjects will be asked to participate in 3 sessions.
