New Lifelites packages in 2020

Take a look at the children' hospices services we hope to support this year

OutSTANDing news at Helen House

Wed 9th Jul 2014 

Less than a year after installing a brand new package of cutting edge gaming and communications technology, we returned to Oxford with an Eyegaze package thanks to the Buckinghamshire Building society.

The incredible Eyegaze technology 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.

Simone Enefer-Doy, Chief Executive of Lifelites, said: “This Lifelites project is more than just futuristic gadgets. The equipment we’ve installed today will provide the youngsters at Helen House with more opportunities to communicate, be creative and take control."

This is our most advanced Eyegaze package yet. After listening to feedback from the six hospices who already have an Eyegaze, particularly from our pilot project at Demelza, we realised the youngsters we work with would benefit from a simple but game-changing addition: An adjustable stand.

This latest iteration of the Lifelites Eyegaze enables care teams to adjust the placing of the technology to suit the specific needs of individual children, meaning that more youngsters will be able to access the internet and play games, even from bed. 

Simone said: “The Lifelites Eyegaze package doesn’t come cheap - even the adjustable stand costs £700 - but we've done our homework and have continued to finetune it. That's why we know it will be a revolution for the children here so we’re incredibly grateful to the Buckinghamshire Building Society for their donation."
