The number of people who benefit from eye tracking technology is ever increasing. Our Eyegaze Edge® is the world’s most advanced eye-driven tablet communication system. It is internationally trusted, locally loved and continues to be the device of choice by locked-in users and their SLPs. Below we’ll discuss how the Eyegaze Edge® is changing the lives of so many people.
People who live with MD, SMA, and Werdnig-Hoffman enjoy the ease of positioning of the Eyegaze Edge®. It works accurately in any position, so users find it very comfortable to use. Even children with SMA as young as 15 months are able to use the Eyegaze Edge® effectively.
Those who have suffered spinal cord injuries and are living with quadriplegia can also benefit from the Eyegaze Edge®. It is often an excellent tool for people who are ventilator-dependent and quadriplegic, especially if they are non-verbal. The Eyegaze Edge® is also being used by some people with spinal cord injuries who are verbal, or who are able to move their heads, but find direct-selection with the eyes a faster and easier method of computer access than alternative methods of row/column scanning, voice control, or mouth or unicorn sticks.
Many people – both children and adults – with cerebral palsy are currently using the Eyegaze Edge® to participate in school, from kindergarten through college, and in the workplace. A lot of people with CP are proficient Eyegaze Edge® users because controlling the eyes does not elicit a movement response in the body. The eyes are a part of the brain, and controlling them does not cause movement in other parts of the body once the user becomes relaxed.
