Abstract

This paper presents MINDWALKER, which is an ambitious EC funded research project coordinated by Space Applications Services aiming at the development of novel Brain Neural Computer Interfaces (BNCI) and robotics technologies, with the goal of obtaining a crutch-less assistive lower limbs exoskeleton, with non-invasive brain control approach as main strategy. Complementary BNCI control approaches such as arms electromyograms (EMG) are also researched. In the last phase of the project, the developed system should undergo a clinical evaluation with Spinal Cord Injured (SCI) subjects at the Fondazione Santa Lucia, Italy.
