As a matter of fact, many people all around the world have “locked-in” due to certain reasons every year. “Locked-in” means that someone lost the whole voluntary movement of the body.

However, they stay conscious after they got locked-in. For instance, brainstem strokes, spinal cord injuries, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis are some of the diseases that damages neurons which controlling muscles.

For this reason, using BCI as a helper for some alternative abilities such as speaking, communication, drive wheel-chair and so on is a good solution. Moreover, other Research fields in BCI have done about providing ability of communication with digital world without the use of muscles.
