"Brain cap" technology being developed at the
University of Maryland allows users to turn their thoughts into motion.
Associate Professor of Kinesiology Jose 'Pepe' L. Contreras-Vidal and his team
have created a non-invasive, sensor-lined cap with neural interface software
that soon could be used to control computers, robotic prosthetic limbs,
motorized wheelchairs and even digital avatars.
National Stroke Association’s mission is to reduce the incidence and impact of stroke by developing compelling education and programs focused on prevention, treatment, rehabilitation and support for all impacted by stroke.
