Computer-Brain Interface Device Experimental Research - Study of Ergonomy and Usability in Business Environment

Radim Brixí, Jaroslav Kalina, Pavel Němec

Abstract

This paper presents results of experimental research from 2011, performed on a group of volunteers and which aim was to properly explore the maturity of BCI devices to be integrated in business environment, e.g. office work. The testing scenarios and focus was aimed to verify if the current capabilities of the selected devices were sufficient in their ergonomic features and spectrum of functions to properly complement and in some case substitute the traditional ways of utilising keyboard and mouse by the users. The research focused also on ability to learn to use BCI device. The study led to identification of several ergonomic and hygienic areas which act as a hindrance for wide utilisation of these devices as a feasible way to provide an users input for the computer over a prolonged period of time.
