Lifelites illuminates Blackpool children’s hospice with Beamz of Pleasure

Sun 21st Feb 2016 

Our second to last installation and hospice staff training day of our 2015 projects found us in the seaside resort of Blackpool delivering a new package of magical technology for the children who are cared for at Brian House children’s hospice.

The new package included a number of magical items such as Touchscreen PC’s, assistive mice, and games, the Makey Makey, Cameras and Printer, Head Mouse, Beamz with a laptop, the Lifelites specialist iPads and Eyegaze. 

Sister Carol Wylde of Brian House said: “Lifelites has been so supportive of Brian House over the years and this new generation of equipment will make a big difference to our children and young people. Being able to express themselves using this technology will give them a real sense of achievement – and a lot of fun"

Eyegaze, an eye tracking device, helps children to communicate in ways in which care staff and their parents never thought possible. Tom is a young lad at the hospice was the first to try out the equipment. His mum was amazed by his reaction and said: “You can really see the difference this is going to make for Tom – it’s really exciting for us to see."
