A wheel chair for people with physical disabilities can be controlled by the brain

Researchers from Switzerland innovated a moving chair for people with physical disabilities that can be controlled by ideas from the brain, as the built in computer system in the chair responds to the brainwaves.

About the importance of this wheel chair, researchers said that it is enough for the person on the chair to remember which way to follow, right or left, to make the chair moves immediately, and it will also be able to avoid obstacles standing in its way.

Moreover, the chair was furnished with special sensors to control it, and thanks to the built in computer system it will be able to know which way to follow, noting that this chair will be available for use on large scale by the physically disabled only after several years.
