About Mindaffect

We have developed a BCI that allows locked-in patients to interact or communicate by controlling a computer with brain signals. Our team, currently counting 10, works on the cutting-edge of artificial intelligence and neuroscience. Our patented BCI technology is easy to integrate with other technologies making it suitable for a range of applications that benefit both patients and caretakers.

History

In September 2017, MindAffect was spun-out of the renowned Donders Institute of the Radboud University Nijmegen in The Netherlands.

How it works

We have developed a Brain Computer Interface (BCI) that allows locked-in patients to interact or communicate by controlling a computer with brain signals.

With our solution, patients wear a headset that measures electrical brain activity. Through visually directing their attention at specifically designed stimulus, such as a special keyboard, the BCI matches the brain signals with the stimulus. This allows a patient to spell per letter.

This method is fast, reliable and requires no training. For example, hundreds of people jointly wrote a story at open air festival LowLands in the Netherlands.
