Eyegaze

The amazing Eyegaze eye tracking technology opens up opportunities to children locked in bodies that don’t do what they want it to.

This incredible piece of equipment can give the gift of fun, communication and control for users even if the only part of their body they can move is their eyes.  

Children whose carers and families thought they were unable to communicate, can now do so with this magical technology – they can tell their carers what they would like to eat or drink and can  even, for the first time, tell their parents that they love them. It means that these children can enter and stay involved in the world around them for as long as it is possible. 

Lois’ mum Karen said:  “Lois is a very clever and funny little girl locked in a body that doesn’t do as it is told. You can have a laugh and a joke with Lois and she really listens to everything people say to her. She knows exactly what she wants but she is unable to tell us, which as parents is just heart-breaking.  So to have the technology available for Lois to use…to communicate is a dream come true for us and for her. It takes her a step towards having the voice she deserves.
