Abstract

The ASPICE project aims at the development of a system which allows the neuromotor disabled persons to improve or recover their mobility (directly or by emulation) and communication within the surrounding environment. The system pivots around a software controller running on a personal computer, which offers to the user a proper interface to communicate through input interfaces matched with the individual's residual abilities. The system uses the user's input to control domotic devices - such as remotely controlled lights, TV sets, etc. - and a Sony AIBO robot. At this time, the system is under clinical validation, that will provide assessment through patients' feedback and guidelines for customized system installation.
