This study aims to develop a system wherein a hands free communications via GSM is integrated. The system was created using Emotiv EPOC headset as the interface device for persons with hand/arms disabilities to have efficient communications. This group used the headset to obtain the raw Electroencephalography (EEG) signals which would be produced by the facial movements of the user. The facial movements of the user specifically for the up, down, left, right directions would be processed and would be used for the control of the GUI. After which, a message would be made and sent to the recipient through GSM module. The GSM module serves as a transceiver of the text message which is used as the medium of communication. This technology opens other innovations for the Emotiv EPOC headset. The opportunity for people not only with hands and arms disabilities, but also for all human beings to experience a hands free communications system would be possible through this research.
