Development of a Wearable System for Monitoring Brain Activity
We are developing a portable technology that records brain activity using electroencephalography to support expressive communication in children with motor and visual impairment.
Call to action
Do you want to help us develop a communication device for youth with severe motor and visual impairments? Consider participating in our research study.
Who can participate
We are looking for participants who:
• Are between 13 and 18 years old
• Have normal or corrected-to-normal vision and hearing
• Are able to read, understand and speak English
• Have no known history of neurological, psychological, drug or alcohol-related conditions, seizures, or head injuries
Province of Ontario and the University of Toronto (OSOTF), and the PRISM Lab, Bloorview Research Institute
Study participants will attend one 90-minute research session at the Bloorview Research Institute. During the session, participants will perform motions with their head, listen and count cues, and complete a questionnaire. They will they wear a head cap with sensors and gel, and sensors (that are worn like headphones) in each ear to measure their brain activity. Participants will receive a small token of appreciation, to thank them for their time.
