Iranian American Professor Helps Quadriplegics Gain Independence

Washington, DC, October 30, 3009 – Maysam Ghovanloo, Assistant Professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology, is changing the lives of persons with high level spinal cord injuries through his innovative tongue driven wheelchair. The Tongue Drive system gives quadriplegics the opportunity to steer a powered wheelchair and operate a computer mouse with a small magnet attached to their tongue. For Ghovanloo, this is just the beginning, as he hopes that the tongue drive system will also provide quadriplegics with the capability to control television, access a computer and anything else that can be controlled by a computer.
