Abstract

Currently no brain computer interfaces exist that can control the individual fingers of a hand prosthesis and is suitable for permanent implantation in and individual with a single limb amputation. Within this thesis a design for a novel minimally invasive brain computer interface system is proposed that would be relatively low risk, allow for control of a prosthesis using existing cortical structures and be suitable for patients with loss of a single limb. The early stage development and proof of concept work has been done taking into account relevant regulatory requirements, so that a finalised version of the design would be suitable for regulatory certification. This novel design is found to be worth pursuing and may in turn open up new research opportunities.
