Qualitative assessment of Tongue Drive System by people with
high-level spinal cord injury

Jeonghee Kim, MS, et al.

Veterans constitute one quarter of the 250,000 people with high-level spinal cord injury (SCI) in the United States, and there are 12,000 cases of SCI adding to this population every year. These individuals are currently underserved and could benefit immensely from advancements in the field of assistive technologies. We designed a Tongue Drive System (TDS) that allows people with severe disabilities to control their environments using tongue motion with a small magnetic tracer. This study showed that users were happy with the TDS and many would use such a device if it were made available.
