How to operate a PC without using the hands
A demo of a biosignal interface, which allows to operate a Windows r PC without using the hands, shall be given. The system – called HaMCoS (for Hands-free Mouse Control System) – enables its user to simulate clicks and movements of the computer mouse by issuing intentional contractions of a single muscle of choice only. Therefore, by employing HaMCoS, even a person with very severe physical disabilities can operate a PC, provided everything exclusively relies on mouse input. The framework built around the system’s Main Module is optimized in this respect, since it offers a comfortable keyboard-free user interface (e.g. comprising large, easily clickable buttons).
