SOLUTIONS AND SERVICES

“Putting technology at the service of people:” these are the purposes and goals of our research.

BrainControl AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication) is a range of CE class I medical devices specifically conceived to help people hit by serious disabilities with limited degrees of mobility to regain self-confidence and improve the quality of life, communicate with the outside world and feel “alive” again.

BrainControl AAC won the European Union Horizon Award for Research and Innovation Program in 2020: we believe that this result does represent the beginning of our endeavour, the starting point to improve our efforts and find the right solutions to our patients’ needs.

The range of BrainControl AAC devices articulates in three different solutions, compatible with different degrees of mobility and ability to interact of the patient.

01. BRAINCONTROL BCI

BrainControl BCI represents the most advanced solution among our products. Thanks to an EEG headset, the specific software and the tailor-made training, the patient will be put in condition to select through thought the right answers to specific questions and transfer them to an electronic device (tablet, computer). It is an innovative and outstanding solution in the world designed for patients with serious disabilities but sufficiently intact cognitive abilities.

For our patients, answering questions such as “How are you?”, “Are you feeling okay?”, “Are you happy to know I am here?” means to re-establish contact with the outside world, their loved ones; it means to regain self-confidence and adding sense to life. It means to gain hope. Finally, it means feeling more serene and happier.

02. BRAINCONTROL SENSORY

BrainControl Sensory is addressed to patients with residual voluntary movements of the body (eye movements, hand, finger, cheekbone, etc.). Thanks to a variety of sensors, such as eye tracker, motion sensors, mouse emulators, our devices optimise the patient’s residual movements to stimulate the interaction with the outside world. Our Research & Development team is constantly involved in researching and developing tools to maximise the residual capacity of our patients which, thanks to the personalized training, will acquire the necessary skills to use their device in autonomy.

03. BRAINCONTROL AVATAR

designed for people with impaired mobility, BrainControl Avatar allows patients to visiting from remote installations, museums, exhibition spaces and any kind of events. In a completely independent way, the patient is enabled to command a virtual robotic alter ego to adjusting audio, image and height of the visual field. The experience will be immersive and real, as if patient were visiting in person that specific environment. In addition, monitor and speakers equipping our device allow patient to be visible from remote embodying the Avatar to facilitating the interaction with the environment, establishing a new and lively communication between the audience on site and the connected person.

TRAINING

The supply of the device represents an intermediate step heading towards the creation of a long-lasting relationship between our clients and us
The strength of our company consists in providing a tailor-made training service, which allows the patient, the family and the caregivers to exploit the whole potential offered by BrainControl. Our specialists and speech therapists will establish a close relationship with the patient and the social environment involved in the project; calibrating and adapting the devices according to the individual needs are fundamental steps to optimize BrainControl.

Last but not least: to establish a human relationship between the patient and our trainers represents a concrete added value. The trainer is the person in charge of supporting the patient and his/her family, answering questions, teaching how to use the device and software. In addition, he/she collects the medical history behind each person, his/her expectations and dreams and supports the daily routine and challenges. An alchemy composed of trust, hope and respect which will contribute to the success of the project.

Our training program is different depending on the solution chosen:

BCI

The BrainControl team guarantees a training program divided into 40-minute sessions, remotely, according to the following program:

Entry Level: 8 sessions during the first two months to enhance the patient’s interaction skills through the device ;

Advanced Level: 16 sessions over the next 4 months to improve the ability to use the system;

Maintenance program: upon request, one session per month.

The training sessions are held by one of our speech therapists, specialized in Augmentative Alternative Communication (AAC).

SENSORY

The BrainControl team guarantees a training program divided into 40-minute sessions, remotely, according to the following program:

Entry Level: 2 sessions during the first month to ensure enhance the patient’s interaction skills through the device ;

Advanced Level: 2 sessions over the following month to improve the ability to use the system;

Maintenance program: upon request, one session per month.

The training sessions are held by one of our speech therapists, specialized in Augmentative Alternative Communication (AAC).

BRAINCONTROL BCI 

BrainControl BCI is aimed at people with pathologies that completely or partially paralyze the person, without affecting significantly their intellectual abilities. It can also be used by blind people, thanks to audio feedback.

The system detects thoughts related to imagined movements (motor imagery) like push forward and relaxation reading the brain waves through EEG sensors. In this way the patient is not required to move his/her face muscles or his/her head. Further commands such as forward, back, right, left are under development.

Yes, since the hardware components consist of a wireless headset and a tablet PC. The outdoor use has no shortcomings.

The BrainControl team offers a training program from remote divided into 40-minute sessions, according to the following scheme:
• Entry Level: 8 sessions during the first two months to enhance the patient’s interaction skills through the device
• Advanced Level: 16 sessions over the next four months to enhance the ability to use the system.
• Maintenance program: one session per month on specific request.
Our speech therapists, specialized in Augmentative Alternative Communication, will hold the training sessions.

BRAINCONTROL SENSORY

BrainControl Sensory is aimed at people with pathologies that forbid verbal communication but allow residual movements such as eye movement (even the slightest ones, for all those patients unable to use the standard eye pointer), cheek movement, hand movement, etc…

As far as Sensory system is concerned, the only limits of use are due to the clinical conditions of the user; age is an irrelevant factor.

The BrainControl team offers a training program from remote divided into 40-minute sessions, according to the following scheme:
• Entry Level: 2 sessions during the first month to enhance the patient’s interaction skills through the device
• Advanced Level: 2 sessions over the following month to enhance the ability to use the system.
