This report has described a system utilizing low-cost components to allow a high level quadriplegic to perform certain functions on his own. Results from 4 months of evaluation by one quadriplegic have indicated the concept shows promise. Clinical testing will be continued with this volunteer and others, to better define required system components and to examine alternative arrangements to accomplish some basic tasks to improve the quality of life for these severely handicapped persons.
