Patients suffering from locked-in syndrome experience extremely great difficulties in communicating with their environment. A Thought Translation Device (TTD) has been developed for such patients, which is coupled to an EEG amplifier, and was tried out on locked-in patients with amytrophic lateral sclerosis. With this device the patient can not only communicate but also manipulate simple processes in his/her environment by means of his/her brain activity.
