Paper discusses the design and development of a face-controlled human-computer interface for people with spinal cord injuries to control cursor movements on a computer screen. The system utilizes electromyographic data from facial movements, which it translates into mouse functions. A technological evaluation of the system is presented. Preliminary testing has indicated that the system yields 80 percent accuracy. System drawbacks are discussed. The prototype system was created by researchers at the Department of Electrical Engineering at National Central University in China.
