2.Secondary Outcome
Title Changes in Accuracy of BCI for Controlling Devices and Text
Hide Description Changes in Accuracy Percentage (i.e., cumulative correct selections per month divided by the cumulative number of intended sections per month). Looking for trends over each 6 month period.
Time Frame 6 months, 12 months, 18 months
Hide Outcome Measure Data
Hide Analysis Population Description
The first six month period was not completed by any participant so accuracy data for six months could not be analyzed.
Arm/Group Title Brain Computer Interface In-Home Use
Hide Arm/Group Description:
Brain Computer Interface for Wheelchair Tilt Control: Patients will be given the BCI for use in-home, as long as they use the BCI at least 10 hours per week and complete monthly performance assessment sessions.
Overall Number of Participants Analyzed 0
