The MINDMAZE augmented reality helmet
Following a stroke, the challenge is to put in place a rehabilitation method that can be deployed as soon as possible and that maximizes the complete return of the patient's motor functions, over the shortest possible time.
To meet this challenge, Maatel and Mindmaze worked together to develop NeuroGoggles®, a system combining an augmented reality generator with sensors that detect brain activity (EEG, EOG, EMG, ECG).
This device aims to accelerate and maximize this motor rehabilitation by immersing the patient in a virtual environment where he will be able, simply by the intention to act, to recreate the corresponding synaptic links.
Sensors are used to collect data to assess the effectiveness of rehabilitation and determine whether one exercise should be continued or whether another can/should be initiated.
For the development of the product, Maatel brought its expertise in electronics and software design to:
Design a flexible electronics (FLEX) allowing the arrangement of the sensors around the patient's head, constituting an integrated and compact unit
Develop the real-time embedded software
Develop a programmable component (FPGA) for high-speed data processing and transmission (GigEVision)
Synchronize signals with virtual images to view live stimulus responses
