Overview

This study surveyed people with multiple sclerosis to understand their interest in brain-computer interfaces (BCIs), bionic applications, device preferences, and development considerations and related these to symptoms and assistance needs. Thirty-four participants took part in the anonymous survey. This study was approved by the University of Melbourne Human Research Ethics Committee (ID: 26078).

Data

survey_results.csv contains the survey results. The first row contains column headings, the second row briefly describes each column/question, and the remaining rows contain participant responses. In Q10.1 and Q10.2, participants list activities they currently find difficult or worry they may find difficult in the future. These were manually labelled into categories of Moving, Self-care and Working by the authors in G10.1 and G10.2. In Q12.1-Q12.4, participants rank their BCI preferences from 1 (most preferred) to 4 (least preferred).

survey.pdf contains the survey, which was distributed via Qualtrics. Participants ranked their preferences for only a single BCI scenario in the online survey.
