Emego – Switch with your muscle

Do you have difficulty pressing a normal jelly bean switch? Well, you should check out Emego, a switch that uses very small electrical signals from limited muscle activity to switch on any device that is being used. This switch can be activated from the smallest movements in the body that are picked up by using electromyography (EMG) technology. It is a game changer for people who can’t use an ordinary switch. This small and light device works simply. It just needs to be placed on a body part, e.g. the arm, it can then control accessibility and environmental control software simply by twitching the muscle. The Emego is built for people with MND or traumatic brain injury. Check out the video.
