Neck range of motion and use of computer head controls

Edmund LoPresti, David M. Brienza, Jennifer Angelo, Lars Gilbertson, Jonathan Sakai
2000 Proceedings of the fourth international ACM conference on Assistive technologies - Assets '00  
Head controls provide an alternative means of computer access. This study determined whether neck movement limitations are associated with reduced performance with such head controls.  ...  Fifteen subjects without disabilities and ten subjects with disabilities received neck range of motion evaluations and performed computer exercises using head controls.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We thank Jonathan Sakai for his assistance in conducting neck range of motion evaluations, and we also thank the research subjects for their participation.  ...

The application controls the computer's cursor with the users' eye movement.  ...  This technique is planned to change the conventional computer screen pointing devices for the people who have certain disability.  ...  This is hardly noticeable by the user as the movement of the mouse pointer still corresponds closely to the movement of the head. A person without disabilities has good control very quickly.  ...

Fitri Utaminingrum, Yuita Arum Sari, Putra Pandu Adikara, Dahnial Syauqy, Sigit Adinugroho
2018 TELKOMNIKA (Telecommunication Computing Electronics and Control)  
In order to help disabled people control their wheelchair, head movement-based control is preferred due to its reliability.  ...  Results show that the method effectively detect head direction indicated by 82% accuracy and very low detection or tracking failure.  ...  Head movement is an alternative trigger for wheelchair control [11] , [12] , [9] . A head has more reliability to deliver control signal since it is less affected by spinal cord injury [13] .  ...
