Makey Makey

Makey Makey is a very clever piece of assistive technology, which enables children with disabilities to turn everyday objects into one click mice they can use for themselves.  Whether it’s a banana or an orange, a glass of water or even a strumming a guitar, the children are able to join in playing with all sorts of games.  If they can’t use a complex controller, they are still able to control a computer game – it opens up a whole world of possibilities to these children in the most imaginative way.

The Tech Trunk - new for 2019

The 10,000 children who currently use hospice services represent only one fifth of the children who require palliative care in the British Isles. These children need our help, so we put our heads together to think of a way to take our magical technology to these children.

 

Interactive Entertainment Hub

Our Interactive Entertainment Hubs are the perfect solution for children in hospices who love gaming, but are unable to use the typical controllers. 

 

 

Mobile Magic Carpet

For children whose lives are limited by their conditions, the Mobile Magic Carpet brings the outside world in, transporting them into a world of make believe.

 

Eyegaze

Even for children with the most profound disabilities, the Lifelites Eyegaze gives them the chance to communicate and play – just like other children.

 

iPads

We pack our special iPads with a whole host of apps to enable children with disabilities to communicate, play, be creative and have fun.  

 

Soundbeam and Beamz

Music is such an important form of expression and it is particularly important for children in children’s hospices who may not be able to speak or move or tell people how they feel. 

 

Special mice

Our special mice make it possible for children with disabilities to have the rare opportunity to control something for themselves.
