The Squid Surgical BCI (Brain Computer Interface) system is an adapted interface for surgical application. The system allows surgical microscopes to be controlled in a much more intuitive and ergonomic way than traditional methods.
When surgical operations are being performed under a microscope, the surgeon needs to work with high concentration and precision. However, it is difficult to control the functions on existing microscopes when both hands needed for the operation. The Squid Surgical BCI (Brain Computer Interface) enters to control all functions of a surgical microscope, resulting in a much more ergonomic work process. This area of application allows Squid Surgical BCI to become the first real BCI tool in the near future.
When connecting the whole system with a microscope, the individual neural code is collected from the brain, sent wirelessly to the tablet, which converts the neural code into a binary code. At this point, the interface sends the commands to the microscope to execute the desired functions. Before connecting the BCI system to a microscope, the user is required to practise specific training sequences so that the tablet can learn the individual patterns of thought and command execution.
