Coupling brain-computer interface and electrical stimulation for stroke rehabilitation and tremor reduction in parkinson?s disease

Authors:   V. S. Adama, J. Hoffman, M. Bogdan


In this paper we describe the design of a novel Brain- Computer Interface (BCI) system for stroke rehabilitation and tremor reduction from Parkinson?s disease. Hereby, the combination of EEG driven BCI with electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) is used with the idea to strengthen the sensory-motor feedback loop in order to stabilize the control of the affected extremities. Before testing the system in healthy people and then with patients, a feasibility study is done first, which is described in this paper.
