Brain Computer Interface for Communication in ICU: a Feasibility Study (RoBIK-1)
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
The main objective of this study is to evaluate the usability of a system to assist verbal communication based on BCI system using the P300 wave in patients with tetraplegia who can no longer communicate because of severe engine damage (tetraplegia) and respiratory damage requiring invasive mechanical ventilation (intubation or tracheostomy) preventing verbal communication.

Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
Quadriplegia, also known as tetraplegia, is paralysis caused by illness or injury to a human that results in the partial or total loss of use of all of their limbs and torso; paraplegia is similar but does not affect the arms. The loss is usually sensory and motor, which means both sensation and control are lost.
Admitted in the ICU
Quadriplegic and requiring mechanical ventilation (tracheostomy) 24/24h
