In this research, we are currently developing a 6-Dof oral Interface in order to help quadriplegic patients operate a wheelchair mounted robotic arm independently. We are focusing on building a device capable of measuring the amount of jaw's movement and respiratory pressure and changing it into electronic signals by using joysticks and air-pressure sensors. We come up with a control method which is adapted to the robot arm's 6-Dof tool coordinate system and can be used to operate the wheelchair mounted robotic arm without using hands or legs. The device can be installed instantly by connecting it to the computers with a single USB cable. The device is in a small size of 220×200×90[mm] and weighs 680[g] for compact purpose.
