Steps have been initiated to aid the world famous Stephen hawking in his speech by using his brain patterns. Mr. Hawking, who had been suffering from the motor neurone disease since 1963 due to which he is almost paralyzed and communicates through a speech generating device which uses his cheek muscle movements to generate speech. The disease is gradually deteriorating the muscle movements due to which his word rates have dropped to 1 word per minute.
Prof Philip Low, an American scientist has come up with this new alternative.
The device is still a work under progress and the scientist is checking if it can help to distinguish each thought of the user.
