Communication Systems for People with Neuromuscular Disability

By 

Abstract

Abstract- The paper presents the scientific perspective of a research project in communication systems for people with neuro-muscular disabilities. The project promotes research connected to the design and implementation of an electronic system designated for the communication with people with major neuro-muscular disabilities. At international level, considerable efforts have been made to find solutions for developing complex communication systems for people with severe disabilities. Our research is focused on the development of a system made up of two units- one for the patient and one for the caretaker-, which enables good radio communication between the patient(s) and the attendant(s). The system will be used in medical care, both in treatment units and homes. The project offers an answer to some of today's challenges in medical care, as it provides autonomy for the people with neuro-muscular disabilities and makes communication with them possible. In Romania, neither medical institutions nor the majority of people with serious disabilities have the resources to purchase expensive communication equipment. Starting form this reality, the goal of our project is to design an efficient low-cost communication system. Index Terms: communication system, people with neuromuscular disabilities, research work
