The technology just like exact sciences and computation take an important role in our daily life; the union of these generate applications with great utility and provide efficient communication alternatives; thinking in this objective the ConsultApp is developed with the purpose to give a communication alternative to verbally disabled people, with the benefit of expressing and transmitting their discomforts as well as medical conditions, through the use of an EEG (Electroencephalogram).


Mobile app BCI (Brain–Computer Interface) EEG (Electroencephalogram) Smart agents (MindFlex)
