Multiple SclerosisUsers are able to maintain communication with the Eyegaze system, even as physical abilities decline.
Different classifications of MS show differing outward progressions of the disease, thus making the need for MS treatment highly individualized. For many people with MS, the slow or rapid decay in neurological and motor function will ultimately lead to a decline in communication ability.

Using the Eyegaze Edge® with Multiple Sclerosis
For example, individuals who experience ataxic dysarthria express that their desired communication does not come out properly, leaving them misunderstood by listeners.
Pauline and Reggie are a loving couple taking control of their lives with the Eyegaze Edge®.
For Eyegaze Edge users with MS, it may be necessary to increase the font size on the screens if the disease has affected the user’s vision. In the past, prior to the advent of medications to treat MS, steroids were used to treat exacerbations of the disease. Cataracts are a common side effect of frequent steroid use and can interfere with eye tracking. If the cataract is removed the Edge will typically track the user’s eye without difficulty.
