Abstract

Development of assistive solutions for people with disabilities clearly benefits from the full involvement of potential users in all stages of the development cycle. In this chapter we will discuss different aspects of user involvement and the role that users could or should have in the design and development of BCI driven assistive applications. We will focus on BCI applications in the field of communication, access to ICT and environmental control, typical areas where AT solutions can make the difference between participation or exclusion.
