Using the Eyegaze Edge® with Cerebral Palsy
The eyes become a portal for basic communication.
A variety of eye movement problems are also often associated with CP, most commonly alternating strabismus. It may be necessary to partially patch one eye for accurate use. For those who have uncontrollable head motion beyond available wheelchair supports, they may not find Eyegaze operation always acceptable.
The eyes can be seen as an extension of the brain, and controlling them does not cause movement in other parts of the body once the user becomes relaxed. Because controlling the eyes does not elicit a movement response in the body, many people with CP are proficient Eyegaze users.
What Users Say About Eyegaze
My arms and hands were deteriorating quite rapidly meaning I couldn’t work anymore. The Eyegaze saved my software engineering job. I can control a Mac and do everything with my eye that I used to do with my hands. I can respond to email, I can surf the web, and I can hold conversations…
I can read books using Kindle, listen to music, email, surf the web, play games, and more. I am once again my old self. Without it I would be a prisoner in my body, with it I am the same smart guy I used to be, with the exception of being paralyzed.
Thank you and everyone you work with. My son Jack is laying in his hospital bed right now using his Eyegaze to chat with his friends on Facebook, check his email, and he just posted on his web page… the nurses and doctors are amazed watching him do all of this with a breathing tube in his throat and about 20 other assorted lines attached to various parts of his body.
My student does research on the Internet for the library, with the aid of her Eyegaze Communication System, and she loves it.
