Title: Eog-Based Device Control Interface for Patients with Quadriplegia

Abstract: The life quality of the patients with plegia and their caregivers is drastically reduced in daily life. Quadriplegia, which means that four limbs and the body trunk are affected from the plegia, is known as the most severe type of plegia. Since patients with quadriplegia can only move their eyes in their bodies and cannot meet their needs themselves, this limits them both psychologically and physically. In this study, a new system is proposed to use the device control interface in front of the patient via their eye movements and hence to control a device (or devices) whichever they want. Therefore, an improvement in both the patient’s and their caregivers’ life qualities since the patients will be able to conduct some simple activities alone. As a result of the limited experiments, to turn on and turn off the preprogrammed devices are controlled using the proposed system successfully.

Özet: Felçli hastalar ve onların bakımından sorumlu kişilerin günlük hayatta yaşam standartları oldukça düşmektedir. Vücuttaki dört uzuv ve gövdenin felç olması anlamına gelen kuadripleji, en şiddetli felç durumu olarak bilinmektedir. Bu hastalar vücutlarında yalnızca gözlerini hareket ettirebildikleri ve kendi kendilerine ihtiyaçlarını gideremediklerinden, hem psikolojik hem fiziki olarak kısıtlanmaktadır. Bu çalışmada, hastanın göz hareketleriyle önündeki cihaz kontrol ara yüzünü kullanabilmesi ve böylece istediği cihaz veya cihazları kontrol edebilmesi için yeni bir sistem geliştirilmiştir. Bu şekilde hastaların bazı basit faaliyetleri yerine getirebilmesi ve hem hastanın hem de bakmakla yükümlü kişilerin yaşam standartlarının az da olsa iyileştirilmesi amaçlanmıştır. Yapılan denemeler sonucunda, tasarlanan sistem kullanılarak isteğe bağlı olarak önceden programlanmış cihazların çalışması başarılı bir şekilde kontrol edilebilmiştir.
