Facepad - facial paralysis rehabilitation device

Facepad is a device, consisting of headphones and console, for home rehabilitation of people with facial paralysis that combines electrostimulation and electromyography to video games. The user will be able to play the video game he prefers replacing the keyboard commands with the facial movements to be rehabilitated. Based on 'Bio-expression'.
