The students of IIT Palakkad have developed an innovative, low-cost assistive communication device to aid paralyzed and speech-impaired patients. The device uses electrooculography (EOG) for capturing the eye movements of the patient to enable them to use a customized virtual keyboard and type on the monitor. For patients affected with weak muscular movement of the eye, the device captures even a residual, miniscule voluntary motion of a finger and translates the signal for typing using the virtual keyboard without touching the keys.
