BCI-RoGO — first prosthesis-exoskeleton controlled by human thoughts

September 18, 2012 18:48

Researchers at the Veteran Medical Center in Long Beach, Calif., have developed, produced and performed the first test of the world's first automated human leg prosthesis, which is managed in real time by using the signals of the electroencephalogram (EEG). EEG signals are read using brain-computer interface (brain-computer interface, BCI) and interpreted in the management team robotic prosthesis RoGO (robotic gait orthosis), which stimulates the patient's leg muscles. During the test the patient, whose feet were wearing dentures RoGO, wore a "cap" with EEG sensors. Additionally, the patient's body at key points established EMG-electrodes, and
