Lifelites @ Demelza

 

We hope our collaboration with Demelza on our Eyegaze pilot project will revolutionise the service we are able to provide to children in hospices across the British Isles.

Can you help us spread some magic for the children who need it most? Have a look at the fundraising events we have on in 2016 and help us plan ahead.

Lifelites teamed up with the Worshipful Company of Information Technologists’ (WCIT) to deliver a ‘path-breaking’ project to one of their new projects at Demelza children’s hospice in Kent. The organisations say they intend to use the project to investigate the impact revolutionary eye-tracking technology can have on children and young people in hospices, many of whom will have severe disabilities.

WCIT have donated over £4,000 for Lifelites are able to install, maintain and train the team at Demelza to use Eyegaze as part of the charity’s wider package of cutting edge technology for the youngsters who learn, play and stay at the Kent children’s hospice.

The project is already causing a stir in the hospice movement and the sector publication eHospice filed a report on the impact the Eyegaze is already having.

Lucy, a young woman who uses the services at Demelza, was ecstatic to find out she was going to be a “guinea pig”, she wrote in her blog: “It really is an amazing new idea. Calibrate your visual scope and voila! You can use the computer just by looking at it! It's incredible! Honestly, you see these things in movies and hear about them being in the pipelines but you never really expect anything to come of it. I felt so privileged to see this new technological wonder up and running and to actually get the chance to trial it and give feedback before it's properly finalised.”
