Abstract

Brain Computer Interfaces enable people with disability to accesscomputer technology, when traditional modes are beyond their ability. This noveltechnology, uses brain waves to initiate the software, enabling people with acquiredbrain injury (ABI) to access applications for eHealth and eInclusion. This paperreports on the outcome of research with target end users and a control population todevelop applications for communication, cognitive rehabilitation, social media andenvironmental control. Adopting a user centred approach we found that the controlgroup achieved an average accuracy of 82.6% and end users achieved 74% over thefour tasks. The findings illustrated that BCI systems are operational for users withABI and numerous recommendations were made to support developer’s move thesesystems towards use in a domestic environment.
