MindAffect develops a brain-computer interface
MindAffect was founded in September 2017 and had its basis in the Radboud University's Donders Institute. Currently a team consisting of ten employees of the company is working on a computer interface that you can control with brain signals.
Communicate with your brain
ALS patients (and other 'locked-in' patients) will soon be able to communicate with caregivers and loved ones. To this end, patients are given a headset that measures electrical brain activity. If patients focus their attention on specially designed images, such as a keyboard that was developed for this purpose, the interface can match their brain signals with the images, so that patients can communicate, by spelling by letter, for instance.
CEO Ivo de la Rive Box of MindAffect says: "This method is fast and reliable, and you do not have to practice it. It opens up new dimensions of interaction. At the annual Dutch music festival Lowlands, hundreds of people joined in writing a story with this interface."
