Eye Motion-Based Wheelchair

With the higher accident rates and spinal cord injuries, the cases of paralysis whether it was partial or total, are becoming more and more common. In order to move, the patient must rely on a wheelchair that can be manual or electrical depending on the severity of the paralysis. By losing the ability to move, the patients lose a part of their freedom and independence as they have to rely on a caregiver to assist them even in the simplest tasks. In this project, we are trying to help the patients in regaining a part of their independence and freedom back by designing a wheelchair system that does not rely on the usage of the hands but only the eye motion. The patient has only one thing to do: memorize the blinking pattern associated with each command.
