Adding a NeuroNode to a user’s communication device might seem like a scary task to take on. The addition of a NeuroNode, however, is pretty simple to set up and beneficial for the user to meet their communication goals.
To demonstrate the ease and simplicity of adding a NeuroNode to be used in conjunction with eye gaze, we have created a video tutorial showing how to set up and calibrate a NeuroNode. We have simplified the process to just three steps so anyone can learn how to set up a user for success!
Step One: Place the NeuroNode
Assuming the user is already using eye gaze and has completed the calibration process, the first step is to place the NeuroNode along the muscle you are targeting. Using the Velcro band, attach the NeuroNode to that desired muscle location, ensuring that the indentations on top of the NeuroNode are aligned with the muscles the user will be utilizing to activate the sensor.
Step Two: Customize User Settings
The next step is to open the NeuroNode Controller Application on the user’s device to determine the best settings for their unique switching abilities. To do this, the graph should be observed as the user attempts to make a switch, adjusting the settings as needed to ensure the system is accurately receiving and translating the user’s signal. You will know that the user has successfully made a switch when you hear a beep, which happens when the blue line exceeds the green line on the graph screen.
Step Three: Save User Profile
Now it is time to save the user’s profile. In order to conveniently return to the user’s customized settings in the future, it is important to save the settings under a unique profile before departing from the graph screen. Once that is complete, it’s time to start communicating!
