BioMuse is a cursor control interface designed for use by individuals with severe physical or neurological disabilites or spinal cord or brain injury. This bioelectric signal controller is a rack-mountable package that enables users to control computer functions directly from muscle or eye movement or brainwave signals, bypassing standard input hardware, such as a keyboard or mouse. This device receives data from four main sources of electrical activity in the human body: muscles (EMG signals), eye movements (EOG signals), the heart (EKG signals), and brain waves (EEG signals). These signals are acquired using standard non-invasive transdermal electrodes. The BioMuse amplifies and digitizes the biosignals, and then processes the signals using Biocontrol's library of proprietary DSP algorithms. For a given application, the appropriate algorithm then outputs code to control virtually any digitally interfaced device. BioMuse software runs as a subtask of Microsoft Windows. COMPATIBILITY: For use on IBM and compatible computers. SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS: Available serial port running DOS 5.0 or higher. Midi applications require a sound card. DIMENSIONS (HxWxD): 3 x 17 x 14 inches.
