Lifelites Donate Cutting Edge Technology to Children in Yorkshire Hospice
State-of the-art technology that works by the “Glint of an eye” has been donated to Martin House Children’s Hospice by the technology charity Lifelites with the help of the Cable and Wireless Foundation.
The fun and educational package, which also included Britain’s first ever children’s hospice radio station, Lodge Radio, has been hailed as one of the most innovative of the award-winning charity’s installations yet.
Lifelites Chief Executive Simone Enefer-Doy said “This package would not have been possible without the support of Cable and Wireless. They recognised how important communication is to children in hospices and have allowed Lifelites to provide the children at Martin House with the means to express themselves and take control.”
Watching the demonstration of the new technology, Simone said, “The Eye Gaze is fantastic, it works by tracking the movement of the user’s eye, and it means that all children – whatever their disability or illness – will have access to the power of technology.”
