Quadriplegic Communicator is designed to provide a communication tool between the quadriplegic patients and their care provider. The system is developed based on user-friendly concept and involved hardware and software integration. The acquisition circuit is able to capture rapid signal response from eye and send signal to the computer through a parallel port. The eye-blinking signal which was received in the reflective sensor will be amplified, filtered, generate a TTL signal to be acquired by the computer and able to be detected through Visual Basic program. Since this tool is expected to be used for Malaysia’s citizen, the software GUI is designed in three languages selection. This system will be able to display the message that is selected from user and play the related message in sound.
