Cruise Bogle participates in a clinical trial of the Tongue Drive system, an assistive technology that enables individuals to maneuver a powered wheelchair or control a mouse cursor using simple tongue movements. For the clinical trial, which took place at the Atlanta-based Shepherd Center, Bogle moved his tongue to direct the Tongue Drive system to move the powered wheelchair around an obstacle course. The clinical trials showed that the Tongue Drive system, which was developed by engineers at Georgia Tech, was intuitive and simple for individuals with high-level spinal cord injuries to use.
