Spinal cord injury (SCI) can disrupt the communication pathways between the brain and the rest of the body, restricting the ability to perform volitional movements. Neuroprostheses or robotic arms can enable individuals with SCI to move independently, improving their quality of life. The control of restorative or assistive devices is facilitated by brain-computer interfaces (BCIs), which convert brain activity into control commands.
In this paper, we summarize the recent findings of our research
towards the main aim to provide reliable and intuitive control. We propose a framework that encompasses the detection of goal-
directed movement intention, movement classification and decoding, error-related potentials detection and delivery of kinesthetic feedback. Finally, we discuss future directions that could be promising to translate the proposed framework to individuals with SCI.
