Abstract

This paper discusses a pioneering area of research that is being carried out by Sunderland University that allows brain injured persons to do simple tasks using robotic arms. Although robotics have been used for helping disabled persons in various areas of disability, very little research has been done with the brain injured persons and robotics. This paper discusses the implementation of a simple model, which consists of brain body interface, a computer, an interface program, an electronic circuit to interface the computer to the robotic arm and a robotic arm. We hope to improve the lives of brain injured people once the pilot studies are completed.
