Abstract

The operation of computer-based aids by disabled and elderly people leads to enormous difficulties because of different control philosophies and user interface concepts for various applications. The developed UIMS allows an assistive person to tailor a human computer interface to the user's individual needs and capabilities, which allows the handicapped user to operate different aids for communication, environmental control, manipulation and mobility by the same principle and mechanism of control.
