A teenager is left with traumatic brain injury, spastic quadriplegia and scoliosis, after a vehicle accident. 13K001 MindBridge - Female golf player
Condition: Diagnosed in a Persistive Vegetative State (PVS). Could only track visually, use eye-blink to indicate yes/no and use switches with physical prompting, but displayed no voluntary motor control.
Solution: Within first month, the user was able to move cursor with only verbal prompts and was removed of PVS diagnosis by a neurologist. After six weeks, was able to turn pages on an on-screen book. Within four months, demonstrated reliable cursor control, which enabled her to utilize a mouse to run several instructional software applications and lifted arm to place her hand on a switch to turn on a tape player – this response was not part of the training program, but could be attributed to the re-connection between brain and body obtained from using the product.
