Communication is an area in need of immediate improvement to ensure quality of life for individuals living with ALS. The aim of the ALS Assistive Technology Challenge Program by The ALS Association and Prize4Life is to accelerate the development of assistive technology to enable ALS patients at varying levels of disability - including complete paralysis - to communicate freely and with ease. Solutions may include hardware or software development that enables communication without relying on either limb movement or speech. Examples include eye movement tracking and Brain Machine Interface based on diverse neural signals.
