This Tongue-Operated Wheelchair is an electronic wheelchair that users can operate with their tongue using a silicone sheet attached to the chin designed for people with severe physical disabilities or those with spinal cord injuries to allow them to be independently mobile. The wheelchair utilizes faint electric signals generated by moving suprahyoid muscles, which are activated in opening the mouth and swallowing food. The user attaches to his or her jaw a silicone sheet with multiple electrodes that send signals to a computer. When the tongue moves in a certain direction, such as “right” or “front,” the computer recognizes the signals and instructs the wheelchair to move in the direction indicated.
