  • Voice Control Interface Prototype for Assistive Robots for People Living with Upper Limb Disabilities. [Journal Article]
    IEEE Int Conf Rehabil Robot 2019; 2019:46-52Poirier 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):56-59Roberts 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; 2016:35-42Herlant 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):451-65Kim 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; 5(213):213ra166Kim 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; 22(3):567-84Bastos-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):395-403Cornwell 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; 20(2):107-10Jones 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; 55(8):2050-6Simpson 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…
