Paralyzed ALS Patient Operates Speech Computer With Her Mind
A patient suffering from ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) at UMC Utrecht, a hospital in the Netherlands, recently received a brain implant that allows them to remotely operate a speech computer with their mind. The patient can use this computer to communicate with their friends and family at home. If initial trials prove successful, the implants could see larger, international trials which lead to the development of even more advanced implants.
