Mind Over Wheelchair Matters.

A research team of the University of Zaragoza has developed a prototype of a brain-actuated wheelchair.

During May 2008, five subjects, only using their thoughts, successfully carried navigation and manoeuvrability tasks with the wheelchair in the University.

The non-invasive method to record the human neural activity was normal EEG signals and a robotised wheelchair equipped with laser sensors.
