Validation and testing of a fabric-based electro-oculography (EOG) access technology


We aim to test the ability of fabric-based electrodes (worn in a headband) to measure eye movement and blinking. This headband could eventually be used as a simple access technology for children and adults who retain voluntary movement of their eyes.
