Emego uses dry sensing technology which means no more uncomfortable skin preparation or gels and the Bluetooth® LE wireless operation means Emego is truly wireless. Emego is body worn, small, light and can be used over extended periods, suitable for applications to detect muscle signals around the jaw, eye, and limbs.
Simply activating the muscle, even slightly, will activate the patient sensor of the Emego to transmit a signal wirelessly up to 10 Metres to a small base station that interfaces to existing EC or AAC equipment via a standard 3.5mm phono jack. The Patient sensor can be charged via inductive charging allowing Emego to be used as a stand-alone or accompany an existing switching method.
Emego, designed and manufactured in the UK by GSPK Design, is developed to easily replace the switch. Accurately and repeatedly detecting a trigger from small muscle movement converting this artefact to a switching signal to interface with existing (eAT) equipment through a wireless connection to the base unit.
