  • A.Eye Drive: Gaze-based semi-autonomous wheelchair interface. [Journal Article]
    Conf Proc IEEE Eng Med Biol Soc. 2019 07; 2019:5967-5970.Subramanian M, Songur N, … Faisal AA
  • Existing wheelchair control interfaces, such as sip & puff or screen based gaze-controlled cursors, are challenging for the severely disabled to navigate safely and independently as users continuously need to interact with an interface during navigation. This puts a significant cognitive load on users and prevents them from interacting with the environment in other forms during navigation. We hav…
  • Voice Control Interface Prototype for Assistive Robots for People Living with Upper Limb Disabilities. [Journal Article]
    IEEE Int Conf Rehabil Robot. 2019 06; 2019:46-52.Poirier S, Routhier F, Campeau-Lecours A
  • This paper presents a voice control interface prototype for assistive robots aiming to help people living with upper limb disabilities to perform daily activities autonomously. Assistive robotic devices can be used to help people with upper-body disabilities gain more autonomy in their daily life. However, it is very difficult or even impossible for certain users to control the robot with convent…
  • Forecasting Disparities with Early Substance-Use Milestones. [Journal Article]
    J Child Adolesc Subst Abuse. 2017; 26(1):56-59.Roberts ME, Spillane NS, … Jackson KM
  • Substance use contributes to health disparities across race/ethnicity, gender, and socioeconomic status (SES). Although adolescent research indicates group-based differences in regular use, few studies have examined patterns when initiation is just beginning. Using a sample of 917 Rhode Island middle schools students (54% female, 26% non-Hispanic White), we collected demographic information at ba…
  • Assistive Teleoperation of Robot Arms via Automatic Time-Optimal Mode Switching. [Journal Article]
    Proc ACM SIGCHI. 2016 Mar; 2016:35-42.Herlant LV, Holladay RM, Srinivasa SS
  • Assistive robotic arms are increasingly enabling users with upper extremity disabilities to perform activities of daily living on their own. However, the increased capability and dexterity of the arms also makes them harder to control with simple, low-dimensional interfaces like joysticks and sip-and-puff interfaces. A common technique to control a high-dimensional system like an arm with a low-d…
  • Qualitative assessment of tongue drive system by people with high-level spinal cord injury. [Journal Article]
    J Rehabil Res Dev. 2014; 51(3):451-65.Kim J, Park H, … Ghovanloo M
  • The Tongue Drive System (TDS) is a minimally invasive, wireless, and wearable assistive technology (AT) that enables people with severe disabilities to control their environments using tongue motion. TDS translates specific tongue gestures into commands by sensing the magnetic field created by a small magnetic tracer applied to the user's tongue. We have previously quantitatively evaluated the TD…
  • The tongue enables computer and wheelchair control for people with spinal cord injury. [Clinical Trial]
    Sci Transl Med. 2013 Nov 27; 5(213):213ra166.Kim J, Park H, … Ghovanloo M
  • The Tongue Drive System (TDS) is a wireless and wearable assistive technology, designed to allow individuals with severe motor impairments such as tetraplegia to access their environment using voluntary tongue motion. Previous TDS trials used a magnetic tracer temporarily attached to the top surface of the tongue with tissue adhesive. We investigated TDS efficacy for controlling a computer and dr…
  • Towards a new modality-independent interface for a robotic wheelchair. [Journal Article]
    IEEE Trans Neural Syst Rehabil Eng. 2014 May; 22(3):567-84.Bastos-Filho TF, Cheein FA, … Carelli R
  • This work presents the development of a robotic wheelchair that can be commanded by users in a supervised way or by a fully automatic unsupervised navigation system. It provides flexibility to choose different modalities to command the wheelchair, in addition to be suitable for people with different levels of disabilities. Users can command the wheelchair based on their eye blinks, eye movements,…
  • Standard task set for evaluating rehabilitation interventions for individuals with arm paralysis. [Journal Article]
    J Rehabil Res Dev. 2012; 49(3):395-403.Cornwell AS, Liao JY, … Kirsch RF
  • We have developed a set of upper-limb functional tasks to guide the design and test the performance of rehabilitation technologies that restore arm motion in people with high tetraplegia. Our goal was to develop a short set of tasks that would be representative of a much larger set of activities of daily living (ADLs), while also being feasible for a user of a unilateral, implanted functional ele…
  • A sip-and-puff wireless remote control for the Apple iPod. [Journal Article]
    Assist Technol. 2008 Summer; 20(2):107-10.Jones M, Grogg K, … Fierman R
  • This brief technical note describes the authors' efforts to modify an existing wireless remote control for the Apple iPod so it could be operated using sip-and-puff switches by individuals with limited upper extremity dexterity due to cervical level spinal cord injury. The authors were able to successfully interface the wireless controller with sip-and-puff switches so that users could play, paus…
  • Tooth-click control of a hands-free computer interface. [Journal Article]
    IEEE Trans Biomed Eng. 2008 Aug; 55(8):2050-6.Simpson T, Broughton C, … Prochazka A
  • People with severe upper limb paralysis use devices that monitor head movements to control computer cursors. The three most common methods for producing mouse button clicks are dwell-time, sip-and-puff control, and voice-recognition. Here, we tested a new method in which small tooth-clicks were detected by an accelerometer contacting the side of the head. The resulting signals were paired with he…
  • Hand versus mouth for call-bell activation by DMD and Becker patients. [Journal Article]
    Neuromuscul Disord. 2007 Jul; 17(7):532-6.Pellegrini N, Pelletier A, … Lofaso F
  • Severe hand dysfunction is common in patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) and may preclude the use of conventional call-bells. We prospectively evaluated a call-bell with two hand-controlled interfaces (push-button and key-pinch) and two mouth-controlled interfaces (sip-or-puff) in 32 consecutive DMD and Becker patients. Patients called intentionally 348 times, using the sip-or-puff de…
  • Electrooculogram wheelchair control. [Journal Article]
    Biomed Sci Instrum. 2007; 43:164-9.Philips GR, Catellier AA, … Wright CH
  • This paper describes the research, development, and implementation of an electrooculogram-controlled wheelchair. This system was designed specifically to fit the demands of users with limited use of their arms and legs. By monitoring ocular bio-electrical signals, this system allows the user to steer the wheelchair using only eye movements. The first generation prototype described here used a "si…
  • The choice to end life as a ventilator-dependent quadriplegic. [Case Reports]
    Arch Phys Med Rehabil. 1987 Dec; 68(12):862-4.Maynard FM, Muth AS
  • A 17-year-old male sustained a C5/6 fracture dislocation and complete C5 quadriplegia in a diving accident. Three days later sensory and motor function deteriorated and he required mechanical ventilation. Surgical exploration found no cause and a fusion was done. Neurologic function stabilized after three weeks with a C1 sensory level, no neck movement, and slight weakness of the tongue. Patient …
